Best "Box" Skyscraper

Nominate what you think are the best "box"-style skyscrapers in the world. These must be cuboid-shaped towers with a square floorplate running from base to top - no setbacks or pinnacle features - just a pure box shape. You are allowed 3 choices.

Please use this thread for nominating only, and preferably a maximum of 1 or 2 pictures per nomination. If you wish to
discuss the topic in detail, or post larger numbers of pictures, then please use the "DISCUSS:" thread.



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


General rules:
The Hall of Fame forum is where we decide about our all-time favourites from the world of skyscrapers, skylines, buildings and cities. In each contest, users can nominate and vote in a specific category.

The five nominations that get the most mentions will be up for the final vote in the following contest. The one receiving the most votes will go into the Hall of Fame.

Nominating
If you name more then three, only the first three will count. If you name the same structure or city three times, that will be counted as one. Please do not use this thread for discussions.

Promoting your favorite
Discuss this week's topic in the 'DISCUSS:' thread.

Obviously I know where Manhattan is ...!

Just because a building or company is named after a city though, doesn't necessarily mean it's in that city. Anyway, the point is that I don't want to spend time checking or looking up where towers are... because setting up the contest takes long enough as it is.
