The VIA now joins an influential list of skyscrapers, including 2015's winner One World Trade Center.
VIA 57 WEST was recognized by the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) as 2016's Best Tall Building Americas winner. The VIA now joins a list of influential structures, including One World Trade Center, New York (2015), Edith Green-Wendell Wyatt Federal Building, Portland (2014), and The Bow, Calgary (2013).
The VIA was also considered for 2016 Best Tall Building Wordwide, which included The White Walls, Cyprus; The Cube, Lebanon; and this year's winner: Shanghai Tower, China. But when given a chance to vote, the audience at this year's CTBUH Award Ceremony and Dinner chose VIA 57 WEST as their unofficial "best tall building" selection.
