Alright--I don't intend to spam this thread with images of every single midrise I like, but the Wrigley Building needs to be mentioned!

The Lloyds Building deserves a mention.

95m tall, designed by Richard Rogers. All the pipes, cables, lifts, etc. are fitted on the outside - the building is literally "inside out"!

As long as the building has a pinnacle height of 35-149m, it qualifies for this contest.

Roof heights don't matter - as long as the highest point on the building is 35m+.
