1. Burj Dubai
2. Russia Tower

I did't choose 3place, as IMO such towers like Spire, World Financial Center, Burj Al Alam, Las Vegas Crown, International Commerce Center are equally good.

perhaps 'The Constellation' - The Middle East can be changed to Doha because as in other threads, it's been announced to be in Doha.

Quite clearly, the Burj Dubai ! If one has already stood before the half-done part, there is simply nothing better.

I voted for the Guangzhou Television Tower. I cannot rationalize it objectively, for some reason the design just "clicks" with me, I just really like it for some reason.

EDIT: Said tower's page on Wikipedia was how I discovered this forum as well.

Burj Dubai, definitely... Just looking at the height, it smashes all other supertall projects.
