I have mixed feeling with the London Bridge Tower. To be honest I don't really feel the tower's design.

Freedom tower for me, very clean cut. Followed by Fordham Spire. I don't much like LBT at all, just something about it... but Bishopsgate Tower looks good

London Bridge Tower without a doubt. What a skyscraper that'll be. Fordham Spire's excellent, as well as Freedom Tower. I also love the design of Bishopsgate. Al Burj is ugly. But LBT has really captured my imagination.

I like Calatrava scrapers and The Fordham Spire will work well on Chicago's skyline.

London Bridge Tower

Al Burj is tall but not a great design. I like the Fordham Spire, and the Freedom tower and also Bishopgate Tower.

If I was able to vote again I'm sure the new Tower of Russia would be on my list

Indeed, It is much more worthy of being here than something like Al Burj (Sorry Al Burj fans but it DOESNT look nice!)
