What do you prefer for the tallest scraper in your city?

What do you prefer for the tallest scraper in your city? Do you prefer residential or commercial (office tower)?

Commercial is usually the trend for a city's tallest building.

In Antwerp we may not surpass our cathedral (123m). After that, our tallest is commercial.

I would find it better if it were office rather than residential.

Right now and in the past it was commercial, but now all the talls in Chicago are hotel/residential.

HK's tallest building is office and the future ICC will be the same as well. Commercial buildings have a very different architecture compared to residential. But I prefer the typical American skyline where most of it's skyscrapers downtown are commercial.

Honestly I hate seeing West Kowloon's skyline where it's dominated by high-rise flats!
