Capitol Records Building, Los Angeles
City Gate, Ramat Gan
Hopewell Centre, Hong Kong
International Place, Boston
Kenyatta Conference Center, Nairobi
Main Tower, Frankfurt
Marina City I & II, Chicago
Marriott Renaissance Center, Detroit
Ponte Building, Johannesburg
Roppongi Hills Mori Tower, Tokyo
Temasek Tower, Singapore
Tour Credit Lyonnais, Lyon
Westin Peachtree, Atlanta

From that list I like Hong Kong's Hopewell centre, the Marriot Renaissance in Detroit, and Westin Peachtree Atlanta. There must be more in the world but I can't think of any at the moment though.

Would Swiss Re be counted as a cylindrical tower?
No, SwissRe has a conical shape.

A cylindrical skyscraper is basically defined as having the same floorplate from the base of the tower to the top.

I nominate the Westin Peachtree. It holds a special place in my heart.:)

1. Westin Peachtree Plaza - Atlanta
2. Marina Towers - Chicago
3. Main Tower - Frankfurt...if that counts.
