Chicago's Two Tallest Towers

On Explore/Flickr Top 500, Aug. 30, 2008

_____________________________________________________

 

After so many years, the Sears Tower in Chicago, will finally meet its match -- and quite close to it literally. The building under construction to the left is the Trump Tower, soon to be one of the tallest in Chicago and the rest of the American continent. Upon completion, the The Trump Tower will also surpass the 400 meter mark, but slightly shorter than that of the Sears Tower. The Chicago Spire, which has also started construction, will soon top out these two towers, and will be the tallest in North America.
