Remarkably tall and thin. I'd be a bit scared being on the top floor in high winds. Seems like it could flip over!

Chicago's residential landmark? I'd say a number of things could qualify. The Hancock Center is certainly one of them.

The Trump World Tower isn't a landmark, but it is one of the tallest apartment buildings in the world.

Right now in Mississauga it would probably be Citygate. Tower one is complete, while tower two is still u/c.


One Park Tower will probably take the prize once it's complete (it's u/c starting 2006 I believe). It will be the tallest in the City once it's complete.


There are a bunch more that could eventually take the title though. Absolute, a 5 tower project, is having a design competition for it's third tower presently, and it's expected to be 60+ stories. As well, there is a 19 tower project that will feature a 50+storie tower, and if done properly, could take the title too.

For Chicago I might have to go with Lake Point Tower (home to Oprah and Sammy Sosa).
