Bigger than it looks

Sears Tower Chicago, IL
110-story trophy office tower consisting of steel columns and beams in a “mega-module” system.
Completed May 3, 1973, rises to a height of 1,450 feet and is one of the most recognizable landmarks in the Chicago skyline.
The Sears tower held the record for the world’s tallest building for 25 years until the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lampur, Malaysia were built in 1998. Then in the Fall of 2004 Taipei 101 took all but one title — tallest to the tips of the antennas, which the Sears Tower still owns. Including the Sears Tower antennas, the total height of the Sears Tower increases to 1,725 feet.
