Lopez Centre or Freedom Tower?

Ok, alot of people are getting sick and tired of scraper vs. scraper but I can't think of anything but doing this one. Which skyscraper do you prefer? Lopez Centre in Manila or Freedom Tower in NY?

Lopez Centre (Manila)


Freedom Tower (New York)

Freedom Tower I guess, but both these towers end in a bad way. The spire on FT is way too big, and those paddles on lopez centre... i don't know, the render is a bit too small... and dark and grey.

Germany-Italy is on right now...

The Freedom tower looks better maybe its just the rendering of the other tower.

Freedom Tower. Which one was developed first, because the designs are really similar. I don't like the top of LC.

Even though I'd rather see the twin towers rebuilt than the Freedom Tower (not a huge fan), I still think its better than the LC. the things on top just kill an otherwise good design.

WIthout bias, I think it is the Lopez Centre, many vote Freedom Tower just because it is in "THE" New York.

I'm gonna go with Lopez Centre with this one. Ok it may not be as tall as The Freedom Tower but I prefer LC's crown. I just hope it's built.

Were does the Philipines get money for those fancy towers when the economy is so small and in shambles?

it's not a government project. it's privately developed

if the government will build something like that, a civil war might break out hahaha.

This is Ortigas, developed by the private sector.


and this is Makati, developed by the private sector as well...

I like the Freedom Tower better. It's cleaner and more elegant. I find the top of Lopez Center awkward.

Both are nice, but it looks like their designs go from a great bottom to a borring and typical/exagerated top. The FT's top is just some huge antena, and I thought they'd top it off with something cooler.

Lopez Centre has a better looking center, but the top is kind of ugly.

FYI guys lopez center was proposed first before freedom tower
lopez center was proposed pre-9/11 days... it was just finances that didnt make the tower a reality...

I wouldn't call The Philippine economy small. It's not even a poor country. As for money, ever heard of private developers?
