The Hall of Fame forum is where we decide about our all-time favourites from the world of skyscrapers, skylines, buildings and cities. Every week users can nominate and vote in a specific category.

The five nominations that get the most mentions will be up for the final vote the week after. The one receiving the most votes will go into the Hall of Fame.

Nominating

1. I nominate Commerce Court West completed in 1972 by I.M Pei in Toronto. It was the largest stainless steel-clad building in the world when completed.

Height (struct.) 239 m 784 ft



2. Jardine House, Hong Kong



3 First Canadian Place, Toronto

- When completed First Canadian Place was the tallest high-rise in the world outside of New York and Chicago.

- Tallest highrise in the British Commonwealth from 1975 until the completion of Malaysia's Petronas Twin Towers in 1998.

-It is currently the tallest highrise building in Canada.


Height (struct.) 298 m 978 ft
