Wrong place to put this thread. All tower vs. tower should be put in Citytalk and Urban Issues.

The Charlotte tower "wows" me more. I don't know, I find North American architecture, though "bland" to many non North Americans, more inspiring. To me, it's almost a symbol of power. Charlotte's BOA tower is a good example.

My vote goes to BofA Both towers look great, but BofA looks VERY cool, especially in real life; photos don't do justice to the building.

BoA, and not just because of hometown bias I find Commerzbank interesting but very dated, whereas BoA is not quite so trendy. Also I don't think Commerzbank has quite as cohesive of a design.

I don't understand why people like the Commerzbank. It's just plain hideous.

BoA Charlotte.

If it was against the Messeturm, the Messeturm would win hands down.
