It's only 861 feet (same as Aqua), but I agree Haroldo. Chicago's arguably NA's best skyline yet is viewed as second rate garbage to people who don't know how anything. How Los Angeles is a "cooler" city baffles me...

I agree that Chicago's skyline is most likely the best in NA, however the "cooler" factor attributed to LA has to do more with it's climate, life style and culture not it's skyline.

Still have to visit Chicago one day. I wasn't impressed by the supposed coolness of LA.

I could live a complete life without going to L.A. Chicago, on the other hand...

Yes... and that is absolutely fine. We all have our own personal taste and opinions and what you find appealing and necessary to live a complete life, billions live their whole lives completely without it.

I'm sure you are not the only one that hasn't been impressed by LA... just like I'm sure there are plenty of people that love LA coolness.

I know it's still only under construction, but the Ping An Finance Centre (660 metres) in Shenzhen gets my vote!
