Which building do you think has more class or a better design.

NOTE: THIS Does not include the Freedom Tower Complex in NYC, and not the Waldorf-Astoria in Chicago.

I think the designs are equally cool, but I voted for Freedom Tower because of its meaning and message.

Tough call, really. Do you go for an uninspiring, but safe and conservative design in the Freedom Tower, or a controversial, but cutting-edge design in the Chicago Spire?

Gotta give the slight edge to the Spire simply because its different. Im not the biggest fan of it, but I think it will look phenomonal where its located.

Although I hate skyscrapers, I give it to the Freedom Tower, much classier looking. The Spire looks like a vibrator.

Eh-oh! Looks like there might be a market for making a vibe called "The Chicago Spire"!
