I've been check another project but, for me ehhh.. only to me, the most beautiful and the most impresive is Burj Dubai - Dubai, but the "Freedom Tower" in NY has something that make me feel so happy, but nostalgic

You can tick as many projects as you want. Thats if you're undecided and value those projects equally. Heck, if you like all of them, then you can even tick all of them!

That's crap. Your render is good but the tower itsself is not.

Best towers are in no particular order:

Chicago Spire
Russia Tower
Lotte Supertower
Pentominium
Burj al Alam
ICC

the height was a point for me but it wasn't all , i think the design is very special and absolutely awesome! there are many towers with a 3-wing design already but none of them is designed so perfect like the burj dubai IMO

Do you mean Ostankino Tower in Moscow with "Russia Tower"? Before the illegal occupation of (parts of) Georgia I would have voted for that tower, and of course Pagcor as nr. 2. Now I vote for FREEDOM in honour of the Georgian people.

I'd have to agree. I think it looks the modern whilst still actually looking like a building, compared to the constellation for example. I like how sleek it looks too.
