The space needle seems perfect for Denver. Being that seattle and Denver both have mountains in the background, and the needle looks awesome in Seattle, it would look awesome in Denver too.

I think having a Burj Khalifa AND a Chicago Spire located in what was once a suburban area of Jersey City, NJ would be good. However the Newark airport could pose a problem. If not there, they can put it close to NYC but not in it, maybe in Yonkers or an area just north of there that is a suburban area.

I'd also want these towers around the area where the Burj Khalifa and Chicago Spire would go:
Taipei 101 from Taipei, Taiwan

Miapolis, something that might be built one day in Miami

YouTube - American Commerce Center

A bit too big for Sarasota but that's my pick.
