^Good work. But it might beneficial to distinguish between those towers that are already u/c and those that are merely proposals.

Not to be picky or anything, but I know you left out at least a few for Chicago that are already built (and there could be more for other cities as well).

AT&T Corporate Center - 1,007 ft 60 floors
Two Prudential Plaza - 995 ft 64 floors

Or did you just pick and choose from the bunch?

He might mean that it's called Fordham Spire right now.

Yea but their Roofs are around 900, In order to make the US supertalls it should have at least 940 to roof and 1100 to spire, thats what buildings made the list.

I mean yea Chicago doesn't have a great track record for buildings taller than sears seeing how every single one proposed was cancelled but I think wwe should wait before we judge.
