It's a toss up between Elite residence, Princess tower and Marina 101..... just kidding I have some taste.


The only ones I put down are:

Shanghai tower wonderfully intriguing design, not sure how it will turn out but looks good in the renders.
Sino Steel tower, the facade fascinates me.
WTC2, personally I think it's the best of a fairly bland bunch at the WTC. Though I think as a group they'll all look pretty good.

Never noticed the Chow Tai Fook tower before, but that has potential, ditto for Kingkey.

Kingkey Finance Center. Everything else ( with a couple exceptions, like Sino Steel) is either derivative or outrightly awful.

+ Samsung Parc 1 , Hanoi Landmark Tower, 1/2/3 WTCs (you mistakenly forgot those, right? ), and Emirates Park Towers.

everything else is , imo. Sino steel is eccentric, but in a good way.

1,2 and 3 WTC and the Shanghai Tower. I also love the Guangzhou and Shenzhen towers. Gorgeous.

All the Dubai ones look so cheap and tacky (except for the Pentominium).

The best projects are uncertain:

Burj al Alam


Lighthouse Tower


And these are the "decent size" - not counting pipe dreams. (Nakheel Tower, One Dubai)
