HSBC is really nice, easily second if not the best.

But home has its advantage, since HSBC and CK is tied, I go for Mr. Li's tower.

Voted for the Trump Tower due to its sleekness/height and the effectiveness of its presence, a well proportioned building which isn't too domineering. Simple form yet quite attractive to the eye which should age quite well.

Seagram would be second place, an NYC icon classic.

Cheung Kong gets my vote though HSBC is nice as well. The other three arent good looking buildings.

Seagram - a revolutionary idea at the time it was built.
