I will start it off and give a reason why you gave it that rating.

Renaissance Tower 886 ft I will give it a 7.5, it is too boxy.

Do they have to exist? Or can they be proposed/On-Hold/Under-Construction?

7/10, but you of all people will know why I deducted 3 points!

- And Ladarron for the one you posted- it's my style of building, glass/modern- post modern look, but the height is not enough for me so 8/10.

Miami will be building it's first ever supertall starting in 2011 hopefully, or whenever the economy decides to get back on track. The building will stand at 1,049 ft. (320m) with 80 floors. It will be mixed use:

I believe it's 2 projects in one, the building on the left attached to the actual skyscraper is called "One Bayfront Plaza II" and will be a hotel, the actual skyscraper is called "One Bayfront Plaza" and will consist of office space, I also heard there will be a mall in it. "One Bayfront Plaza would primarily consist of offices, but also would include a retail mall on the lower levels." - Wikipedia. I also believe it will be the tallest building south of Manhattan.
