8. John Hancock Center, Chicago
Erected from 1965 to 1969 and become Chicago first serious contender in skyscraper race to the top outside New York City. This building also equipped with America's highest indoor swimming pool which located in 44th floor. It's also amazing the fact that it only costs 100 million dollar show us how far our money has been shrinking.

7. Aon Center, Chicago
This office tower building brings nostalgic memories of destroyed twin tower in Manhattan since its outer design of two are so much look-alike. Not really surprising considering it was build at the same tie of old WTC. Anyway, as its name called, it was a Aon headquaters but now mainly owned by Jones Lang LaSalle.

5. Empire State Building, New York City
Crowned as the highest building in the world for nearly 40 years before replaced by Sears Tower (now Willis Tower). The fact that this building was built in 13 months was outstanding and insane considering the construction method and technology on that time. By architecture it's only 1,250 feet but now the tip was extended to 1,454 feet.

4. Trump International Hotel and Tower, Chicago
Simply called Trump Chicago Tower, it was supposed to be the new tallest building on the planet once it complete but too bad 9/11 happened which makes the owner redesign tower to be a lot lower. The building look stunning nonetheless as it located next to last Chicago River curve before reaching Lake Michigan which gives sight of Lake even from ground floor.

3. 432 Park Avenue, New York City
Lo and behold, new hottest residential tower in town, it is the highest residential building in the world with highest floor is taller that any building in Manhattan. Top floor penthouse was reported sold to anonymous for $95 million. From design this is perhaps the slimmest building ever. Let's hope it's survive any typhoons from tipping over.
