Bank of America for sure. The shape and height is amazing and I was never a fan of Cityspire.

BOA without a doubt - I love the simple yet stylish design. When I saw it in person, it really left me speechless.
The City Spire is also nice, but it's too massive: it lacks proportion, and looks a bit awkward. It reminds me of a huge rocket with booster two rockets.

I've always disliked Cityspire....so BoA it is!

BoA's glass cladding is truly beautiful.

The pic of Cityspire above makes it look like an extremely boring robot with very long arms.

Awkward... you might say so but actually I do appreciate its design a lot--- very innovative "rocket" design. It's much older than BOA, but cityspire is certainly another noteworthy masterpiece, too.

BOA is awesome--- simple, and elegant, as you said.

I don't like either building, but voted for BOA because I dislike it less

oooops, lol, I meant to vote BOA!
Anyway, Cityspire isn't as bad some of you say, but the Bank of America in Seattle is amazing.
Although I'm not able to understand how these two different skyscrapers managed to get put against each other

I don't find the City Spire ugly (for someone living in Holland, any building taller than 150 meters is WOW!!! ), and there's no denying that it looks very impressive, but it's just that in my opinion much more could have been done with the design.
Besides that, it's all relative: the exceptional beauty of the BOA (as I said, when I saw it in person, it truely blew me away) makes it a somewhat unfair comparison imo.: when compared to something extremely beautiful, average objects tend to look even more average (if you catch my drift).
