I was hoping Burj Al Alam would get more votes. Seems to be underrated here...

It would be good if people could provide more interesting and detailed reasons for their choices, rather than "Cool", "Awesome!", "Love it", etc...

I think that the best looking project is the Chicago Spire. Incredible detail, impossible to build 10 years ago and a very massive look, more IMHO than the excellent-designed Burj, too thin at the top.

Just a hint:

If you like all of the Projects, then check them all. I voted like 12 - 16 projects and I found out there are other projects out there that I forgot like the Busan Millenium Tower and Pagcor Tower in Manila.

Well I chose the Al Burj and the Burj Dubai, purely because they have the right idea for elegant architecture and design, as well as thinking big.

I also like the Freedom Tower's glass panels and how they shine but I hate the design and architecture. My worst is yet to be decided.
