BURJ DUBAI vs SWFC

Both are gonna be awesome skyscrapers for different reasons,the Burj Dubai with it's sleek design and mind blowing record breaking height, and SWFC for its very unique design,and great height of its own.Which has more appeal to you.

SWFC, it's in my hometown. Hopefully it will have restaurants with good views on top.

Burj Dubai is taller and appearantly that's the only thing some people here take into consideration. SWFC is an architectural masterpiece while Burj Dubai is just a tall pipe, it's nothing compared to SWFC when it comes to architectural expression.
My vote naturally goes to SWFC.

I chose BD just for height. In terms of looks they are both equally appealing to me.

SWFC is going to be the best tower in the world when completed. BD looks also great though.
