Panama isn't known for having 'amazing' skyscrapers, but the F&F Tower, otherwise known as the Revolution Tower, might just change all that, thanks in part to the Emporis judges' decision to award it seventh place. The tower, which resembles a strand of DNA, can be found in the city's financial district and is just one of a number of skyscrapers to spring up in Panama in recent years. Others include the 192-metre-tall Venetian Tower and the Panamera, which will house Latin America’s first Waldorf-Astoria Hotel.

I'm sure there's some novelty factor (or maybe some sort of bias) which explains how 8 Spruce Street was judged to be number 1, but judging from the pictures I'd say that the Al Hamra tower should win by a mile. That's one of the most beautiful buildings I've ever seen in my life!

Is there any extra explanation for why the towers have been ordered in that way, because to my eyes it's Al Hamra, then the Scandic Tower and Reflections. KK-100 tower gets the comedy vote, both for the silly name and how completely out of place it looks against the Shenzhen skyline.

There are several stunning and unique buildings in this list but the winner goes to a generic looking skyscraper in New York!  If they couldn't even be bothered to give it a name it can't be that special!!

This is number 1?  How much did the yanks pay for that disgraceful opinion. Every other tower on here is far better than this monstrosity which you could easily confuse for a Cape Kennedy Rocket Gantry. The building in 2nd place is beautiful in its appearance as soft fabric rather than concrete,  glass ... or stainless steel pipes..but all the others have style unlike this pile of scrap metal.

What about the Freedom Tower or is that not finished yet so it doesn't count.
