No, the thread says under construction now.

I'd probably say the Burj Dubai, such a simple, elegant, tranquil design.

Burj Dubai seems to be chosen often. If it were 500 feet tall, I doubt it would be so popular. Design, proportion, materials, LEED classification, fit with neighbourhood, overall look? Height is impressive, but it doesn't mean the same thing as best.
I agree, so have a look at this baby. Encana's "The Bow". Under construction in Calgary alberta. this is one sweet office tower. i would love to go to work each day ifmy office was anywhere in this tower. http://forum.skyscraperpage.com/showthread.php?t=131013

These are beautiful!! I can't believe I didn't even know about them... I'm really getting behind on my skyscraper knowledge, I've got to get caught back up. I think I'm going to add these three to my list too!
