I think my vote would've gone for the Transamerica Pyramid. I think it still looks great and iconic as ever in San Francisco's skyline. A lot of the other ones are still great looking towers, but lets face it, if they were built to half the height you'd hardly give most of them a second glance. To me the Transamerica Pyramid would still grab your attention if it was half as tall. Just my opinion though.

i feel the same way but unlike most buildings made int he 70's it wasent a boxy one and its one building that really stands out one of my outher favs is the WTC it is by far better then the sears

well the Sears Tower has a better design than the WTC, but I feel nostalgia for the WTC, therefore the WTC has my vote

WTC if choosing from the list. Sears Tower is one of the ugliest IMO. If choosing from all of these towers that were posted in here:

1. Intraco II (Oxford Tower) in Warsaw
2. AON Center in Chicago
3. Renaissance Center in Detroit
4. WTC

All others are quite ugly ...
