Which buildings would look good in your city?

Which buildings, from other cities or other countries, do you think would look good in your city?

For HK, I would like to see these:

In Central
Crysler Building, NY (put it beside BOC, what an interesting modern-classic contrast!)
Swiss Re, London (put if beside HSBC, cyber-financial duo of similar height)

In Wanchai/Causeway Bay
Empire State, NY (make Wanchai skyline richer)
and one more tall building but no idea

In Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon
former WTC, NY (add stunning supertalls in Kowloon side to rival HK island before ICC is finished)

In Kowloon Station
Trump World Tower (put it in the Union Square Project near U/C ICC to add fame & greatness to this already most gorgeous residential cluster in the world)

For other places/residential areas in HK, no need to add for they are already the tallest and most stunning in the world, far ahead.

Oh! I have almost put the whole NY in HK!

i would like to see 2IFC in the cityplace cluster west of the CN Tower, and the Bank of China building in the MINT cluster of the financial district. Petronas twins would look good at Yonge/College and finally the Chrysler building in the midtown cluster.

The AT&T Tower in Nashville would look amazing in my city (which is just 45 minutes away) if it was placed downtown by cumberland river.


It would look good in my old city's skyline too. Colorado Springs:
