Montreal had taller buildings than Chicago from 1962-1964 but not the tallest outside of New York. Toronto had tallest outside of New York and Chicago 1974-1989 when LA surpassed FCP. After that it was Atlanta.
Prudential Center is 907' with the antenna and 750' without the antenna. 750' > Tour de la Bourse's 623'

So the original poster was correct.

Cant wait to see some of those huge lots in the South Loop get developed hopefully within the next 5 years.
