Burj Dubai all the way however some of the other towers which I didn't know were proposed seem quite interesting eg. Oyrx Tower and Barwa Tower.

Russia Tower +1
b/c I don't particularly like boxy towers, BD is "pop-scraper" anyway, and many other listed projects might never happen.
+Pyramidal shape is an excellent choice for a tower to represent Russia.

The new skyscraper "legends" I think will be:
Burj Dubai
Russia Tower
Chicago Spire
ICC
SWFC
Freedom Tower

Maybe I should have voted for those but I didn't really think when I actually picked the towers


What I did vote for (for various reasons)

Burj Dubai
Russia Tower
Chicago Spire
Lotte World Tower
ICC
Damac Heights

If Russia Tower is a new legend, why thread of this one has so little number of posts?

Some of these are proposed, so my favorite proposed tower Al Burj!!!

Towers already being built: I choose

Burj Dubai - definately will be a classic
Chicago Spire - Exceptional
Russia Tower - Best three wings implementation ever.
Some of them are downright hokey, though. I will not state which ones!!!

The Chicago Spire Vs. Russia Tower

The Chicago Spire and the Russia Tower are fighting it out for second place! This is an interesting match! Far more interesting a result than the one for First......Burj Dubai. Go Spire.

Burj Dubai is going to be a major landmark for decades to come, its truly a milestone for skyscrapers. Other than that, Russia Tower, Sumida Tower, Burj Al Alam and The constellation.

The ICC isnt bad either

The poll results, and the number of votes for each tower, reflect very closely the respective heights, at least for the top four. Do the maths and verify.

and took no notice of the heading..."dont just vote for the tallest building"
