the awful thing about Freedom Tower here is that it still feels like there is one missing. I don't want to vote.

Hmm..

Welcome megamegh to SSC! Umm I would definitely say Sears Tower considering that it is way older than the Freedom Tower but in my opinion Freedom Tower will never surpass the Empire State building and plus, this building hasn't even started constructions so when it's built, lets see a picture and see which one is better. Because you can't look at a render and the actual real building and compare something that is not even 2 feet tall to something that is over 1,300ft.

Like most of the replies here, I have to go with the Sears Tower as well. This building has remained in the top 10 worldwide for over 30 years. That is pretty d**n amaaaazing, to say the least!!! Although the Freedom Tower isn't built yet, I guess we'll just have to wait and see how it turns out once it is completed.

The Freedom Tower, I like the design very much. Sears Tower is way to boxy and boring for me.

I think the Freedom tower by far, the Sears tower looks like a bunch of boxes together, without style it's just too tall but nothing else.

The Sears Towers.

The Freedom Tower is so bland even for something that is suppose to be new and futuristic. Honestly, if the Freedom Tower was built else where without the history behind it, would anyone give a damn?
