It was extremely tough call. Any tower from this list would get at least 11 out of 10 from me when it's completed. Anyway I've chosen Pentominium - Dubai .

My favourites are ....

1. The Chicago Spire

The footprint to height ratio is crazy and the construction is being covered magnificently. The insanity of this tower makes it no. 1.

2. WTC 1 and complex

All that building on one spot means plenty of interest. Given the added history and location this makes for one intriguing project.

3. Waterview Tower

This slender tower is very interesting in terms of layout and looks, plus the construction seems to be very quick. Will it beat Trump tower?

4. Trump Tower in Chicago

The tower shape is quite plain, even though the glass clading is high quality. The interiors should be of greater interest.

LEAST FAVOURITE PROJECTS

1. Burj Dubai

Overrated and an eyesore. This tower is arrogant, forcefully prominent. Lair of the arrogant rich. Product of the exploited poor. Impratical and the sustaining of this building will be a drain on resources. Extremely wasteful and proud.

2. Shanghai World Finance Centre

Initially interesting this project hasn't matched what was anticipated. It looks incredibly boring. The Jin Mao overshadows the SWFC not in height but clearly in looks. As for the proposed Shanghai Centre buildings - they are so beautiful compared to the SWFC, that this building looks postively ugly.

Please note that this post wasn't meant to be tactful, but truthful.

Nothing beats old beautiful at-deco style Chrysler Building and ESB in NY. That ones aren't the highest but still breathtaking.

I vote for International Commerce Center - Hong Kong. For it's simplicity and majesty. It will still be beautifull in 100 years.
I'd go to Hong Kong just to see this one.

I could not choose just one. But overall, in it's obviousness, Burj Dubai is at the top of my list.

Freedom Tower is my number one choice!

Incheon Towers are my runners up! I prefer clear and classic forms instead of organic or curvy ones!

Millennium Tower Busan is also good, third place!

Oryx Tower looks like some Spongebob Character what made me choosing this one too

You probably don't know, but it's too small.
