10 years ago I stayed at The Grand Hyatt in the Jin Mao tower; If memory serves correctly our room was on floor 73. Great memories there, I really really enjoyed that experience.

The tallest building I've ever seen is the Shanghai Tower. Too bad it wasn't complete yet when we visited.

My tallest was the Empire State Building.

BTW: The thread title is wrong, it says NEVER seen.

Then my answer would be the Burj Khalifa.

Tallest I've seen and been in was Sears Tower. Tallest building in the world - height to tip - too.

Uh, where have you been for the past seven years? The Burj Khalifa beats the Sears Tower by over 1000 feet when measured to the tip.

The past seven years I've been anywhere but Chicago. The subject is "seen", not "known to exist" & I have seen Sears Tower in 2004, and it was indeed the tallest building in the world to tip when I've seen it.

It also means that I've never seen Willis Tower...

It should also be "tallest". The highest buildings I have ever seen were a few establishments in Amsterdam.
