But why does it have only 8 votes. I think it deserves 2nd or 3rd place.

I liked the sleek design of the Trump tower, but the Seagram and HSBC towers were nice as well.

Aon isn't even the best box in Chicago. I'll take the IBM Building over the Aon.

HSBC Global Headquarters look quit nice on the picture but i see it every day and i don't very like it . My favorite one must be Cheung Kong Center.

TD Centre, Toronto. It's a Mies van der Rohe masterpiece. It's a better example than the Seagram's Building because it is part of a series of 5 structures.
