The [email protected] Bay in Singapore is rising at 245m. It is one of the world's top ten 6-star residential building to be built.

The towers that immediately spring to mind for me are:

Burj Dubai
Shanghai World Financial Center
Union Square 7, Hong Kong
Trump Tower, Chicago
1 Bryant Park, New York
[email protected] Bay, Singapore

I think I would probably go with Burj Dubai first, for its sheer height, followed by SWFC (even with the redesign, it's still great). Not sure what my 3rd choice would be though.

The future tallest in HK is The International Commerce Centre. It's not Union Square 7 anymore.

They are the same. The building's official name just changed.

Hearst Tower, New York

A very innovative and 'different' facade :

There have a number of very interesting recently-finished skyscrapers around the world. The first one that came to my mind was Turning Torso, whose geometry defies the conventional skyscraper look. Next is the simplicity and elegance of Philadelphia's Cira Centre, which makes good use of an under-used site in the downtown area (Center City). Hearst happens to be still under construction, so I picked that one.

Comcast Tower in Philly is a good shout also - its height and stature are absolutely perfect, giving Philly the pinnacle tower that it has so deserved.

It looks like the BoC when it comes to angles but the rest, NADA
