Rate your City's Tallest skyscraper

I give NY's tallest skyscraper, the ESB, a 9. Very nice and beautiful art deco architecture.

Toronto. Other than the 1822 ft. CN Tower, the tallest building is the almost-1000 ft. (978, not including the 200 ft. antennae) First Canadian Place. Some people don't like "boxes", but I do, and this is one of the best around. I give it a 9.5:

You ask so I will tell, but since I don't live in chicago my opinion won't matter anyway. The Sears tower gets an 8 from me, while it is sleek, and very tall, it isn't well proportioned and I dislike the anntenae.

For my Hometown, First Canadian place, I would vote 8.5. While not a signature building, it is a very nice box, and the white marble cladding makes it look very sleek.

America One Plaza In Downtown San Diego:


I'd Rate it a 7.5, the top looks cool but the body is average at best.

I'd give our tallest, below, a 6. It's a typical box occupied by a good company (Legg Mason)!



Our second tallest I'd give a 9. It has character and the lobby is spectacular!
