Which Skyscraper Would You Most Like To See In SA?
 
Ok folks,

So I was doing some thinking and I got an idea. What EXISTING skyscraper/skyscrapers do you wish SA had? In other words, what are some high rise buildings that are located in other cities, that you wish SA had in on our own skyline?

*please note, no pictures are mine they are all copyrighted.*

I think that BOA Corporate Building in Charlotte would be a perfect addition to SA's skyline:http://farm2.static.flickr.com/1237/...jpg?v=0http://

Also the W in Dallas, kind of wish the Grand Hyatt would have taken notes.

Definately. Too bad the Grand Hyatt didn't look more like that.
