I could kind of see why you would think it's not dominating considering the fact it's in a denst, large, high skyline, with mostly skyscrapers and some supertalls and Taipei 101, for example, is next to a bunch of high rises which makes it look dominating. But the Sears Tower is black, tall, and bulky which makes it dominating. Especially if you look at it alone.
