Unfortunately I didn't get a photo of me and the building together, but I did manage to get a few of just the building itself.
Last I heard it was just a shell with no tenant. Awesome pics however.

All in Chicago except Trump, wasn't built back then. Other than that only antennae - Fernsehturm Berlin & Frankfurt, Commerzbank tower with antenna.

And probably the cluster of 8 supertall guyed masts near Rhauderfehn, 8x352.9m, kind of cool in a way.

Ah, yes, the Wells Fargo Plaza. I forgot that supertall isn't actually 1000'+, it's 300m+, so I left that one out of my count.

I have never seen a supertall, except the Eiffel Tower
The highest skyscraper I've ever seen is "Tour First" in France (231 m)
I guess that it must be incredible ...
