The first post shows both 'OUB' and 'UOB'
The pictured one, however is UOB I am aware it is so easy to typo this!

OUB:


UOB:


I do, however like OUB better than both. I love the triangular shape and the huge leg at the base!

I hope that I did not typo it, or if I did, I would be lucky to put UBO or OBU so it is easy to see.

I like UOB the most.

Nicer shape and it is also located in a good setting.

UOB is better, though neither of them are very nice looking for an office building. US Bank looks more like a condo tower than UOB, though. Really I don't think any city's skyline should be tainted with the likes of these buildings, and its a shame USB is LA's landmark tower.

The US Bank Tower is more a "pride" than a shame. And they're gonna built a new tallest in LA, the building has to look really good.

US Bank! I've always liked both of them, but I've always thought US bank looked more elegant. UOB's color is kinda dull, but the US bank is bright white

Ive always had a thing for the USB in LA.
definitely the crown at the top of the building, as well as how it affects the skyline out there.

both looks great to me. I dont like polls by the way. But honestly i like US bank Tower. Looks round and "filled". UOB is more elegant. wanch u should have one that says " both are nice".
