The building has to have been completed, topped out or opened within the calendar year and has to have some aspect that makes the building cool.

The competition was stiff with lots of great projects to choose from, so narrowing it down to just five wasn’t easy. So without further ado, and in no particular order, here are our “Top 5.”

These aren’t isolated events. Every month you’re bound to find new reports of areas feeling the pinch.
