These two are bigger and beautiful IMO
Personally i think spires are being used to much today. But together with the Burj Dubai spire the Freedom Tower spire is one of my favourites though, its sturdy and suits the building

I find this as a very difficult choice. They all differ quite significantly when it comes to the overall height of the buildings. I prefer definitely highest ones, nonetheless design of the towers is important as well. Accordingly, opinion regarding my favourite supertalls is as follows:
burj dubai;
Korean Rail Corp. Tower - Seoul;
Russia Tower - Moscow; and
Pentominium - Dubai

My vote goes to the Burj Dubai, it is going to be remembered after all as an icon of the early 21st century.

Burj Dubai, Chicago Spire, Freedom Tower, SWFC, ICC, because of their designs and the way they fit in impressive skylines !

i voted for Burj Dubai and the Chicago Spire.

Burj because of its sheer massiveness and the Chicago Spire because it is also massive and i just love the design. If i could live anywhere i wanted in the world it would be the penthouse on the top two floors of the CS without a doubt.

Burj Dubai - of course
Chicago Spire - a completely new idea for Chicago
Crown Las Vegas - nice design and Las Vegas needs some more tall buildings
Freedom Tower - a great design in a great place
International Commerce Center - WOW!

In my mind it is a tie between Burj Dubai and Freedom tower in new york.
I don't like the dfesign of Burj Dubai but it is so immense that the size itself makes it goodlooking. As for the Freedom tower I like the design even though it could have been made higher, and I also think they should drop the spires as I generally hate buildings with spires

Why poll includes Manila's tower? Is it skyscraper?

The spire is important for the Freedom Tower, IMHO, for the symbolism it provides. 1,368 was the height of the WTC, and 1776 is the year of U.S. Independence.
