I think the first Euopean skyscraper diserves a nomination because of its pioneerrole for the European highrise.
And besides it's simply a great building too.

The first European skyscraper!
KBC-tower, Antwerp, Belgium
A nice classic from 1929-1932
98 m.

It is basic that one of the best, if not the best mid-rise is the Terminal Tower in Cleveland. Localy, Easter Columbi and the LA Cityhall are pretty good too.

How about the drop dead beautiful Esprito Santo Plaza in Miami? It just makes it in under the cut at 148.5 meters.

BTW, I first thought the Eastern Columbia Building was abandoned. But it's nice that it's being converted to lofts.
