NOMINATE: best skyscrapers for the 2014 cup

It's time again to find out what's the best skyscraper that was completed in 2014, and as usual you all get to pick the nominations.

The top 8 tallest skyscrapers get a bye, so you don't have to nominate these:

- One World Trade Center, New York
- The Wharf Times Square, Wuxi
- Wuxi Suning Plaza 1, Wuxi
- Moi Center Tower, Shenyang
- Burj Rafal, Riyadh
- One57, New York
- Wuxi Maoye City, Wuxi
- Heung Kong Tower, Shenzhen

Also, keep in mind the following entered the tournament last year for being pretty much complete:
- World Trade Center Abu Dhabi
- Costanera Center
- DC Tower, Vienna

Rules are as always, you can nominate 3 skyscrapers that were completed in 2014. Please no discussion, but feel free to post images of your nominations. If you need a bit of inspiration, go here.

Happy nominating!

Soyak Kristal Kule
[IMG]http://i57.************/fwkb2b.jpg[/IMG]
Quote:
The Soyak Corporation’s new office towers will add a dramatic silhouette to Istanbul’s skyline: a 170-meter tower of asymmetrical sloping surfaces. The structure’s design process is as distinctive as its appearance – it is the city’s first building to use performance-based design (PBD).
Using PBD on “regular” buildings is a new approach; applying its principles to the unusual shape and complex geometry of Soyak Center is extraordinary. “PBD helps us realize daring architectural visions without compromising safety,” said Managing Principal Aine Brazil.

Torun Tower
[IMG]http://i59.************/anksl.jpg[/IMG]
Quote:
The building is planned to be a landmark for the city of İstanbul, which will have prominent visibility from both the Bosphorus and northern districts of Istanbul.

Rönesans Tower

Quote:
This tower, the tallest on the Anatolian side of İstanbul, makes a memorable presence for the headquarters of a dynamic construction and development company. Occupying an "edge-city" context at the intersection of two major highways, the tower is completely freestanding and seen in the round. Functioning like an obelisk, it marks the end of long vistas and announces the entrance to the city from the east.
They are completed before 2014 ends.
