The buildings that comprise "Illinois Center" are not even visible in your photograph. They're not tall enough.

^Sorry I was using "Illinois Center" as a catch-all term for 2 Prudential, Aon, etc. which I have heard from other people. I know they are not technically in Illinois Center but close enough.

That is a private residence terrace right? You have to take some pictures from there. That is the closet any of us will get to the best terrace in the city and arguably the entire damn country.
