#4 looks just too dull.

I like #'s 9,10,12 and 13

# 9 because it looks like it wii generate a lot of growth around it and # 12 and 13 of it's marvelous designs.

# 10 the best

If you combined # 2's landscape and monorail design with # 12's tower than that gets my vote.

The winning design looks ugly to me...#11 looks good because the base looks like a public square...always a plus!
