Baltimore should have the unbuilt (and sadly, never will be, or at least this design anyway) Transbay Tower in SF. Horribly out of place? YES! Freakin AWESOME. YEAH.

Take that Chicago Spire off hold and get it going in Chicago, that is all I want... no other building in this country being added into Chicago besides One World Trade Center makes sense, because they will look out of place or Chicago doesn't need them.
You guys can have it, split it or something lol, that'd be interesting "urban art". But I want the old towers back, not that thing.

Don't want it, was just saying that it's the only tower that would make sense to have in Chicago's cityscape, in my opinion.

I don't want it at all, why settle for 1776 feet? Want taller than that, I'm thinking Burj Khalifa.

I wouldn't mind the Burj in New York, that'd be interesting. Imagine seeing all of NYC from that high up.



Not so bad in Chicago either.


I really think it would look best in LA though, I have a picture in my head of how it would look and it fits for me. Too bad I couldn't actually find a pic of it.

Something edgy that would break the monotony of the uniform Boston skyline. Like a giant and taller Trans America pyramid building inspired by the one in SF. Build it right between the Back Bay and Financial district.

Denver could also use a boost in it's downtown skyline, perhaps a Space Needle reinvented, lol.
