8. Carbide & Carbon Building - 1929 - 503 ft - 37 floors
9. Bankers Building - 1927 - 476 ft - 41 floors
10. Metropolitan Tower - 1924 - 475 ft - 37 floors
11. American Furniture Mart - 1926 - 474 ft - 29 floors

13. Randolph Tower - 1929 - 465 ft - 45 floors
14. Tribune Tower - 1925 - 463 ft - 34 floors
15. Roanoke Building - 1925 - 452 ft - 37 floors
16. Wrigley Building - 1922 - 438 ft - 27 floors
17. Willoughby Tower - 1929 - 438 ft - 38 floors
18. 333 North Michigan - 1928 - 396 ft - 34 floors
19. Allerton Crowne Plaza - 1924 - 360 ft - 25 floors

That's pretty tall for a church. I want to say Trinity Church was once the tallest church in NYC. I wonder how the two structures compare to each other. Is Chicago's Temple considered something of a landmark like Trinity Church in NYC?

This thread would be incomplete without Montreal's Sun Life Building. When it was completed in 1931, it was the largest office building in the British Empire in terms of square footage.

Bump!

This thread gotta be pulled up again


I'm in love with most of the mentioned buildings. Classical skyscrapers somewhat are amongst the most fascinating buildings to me.
Tribune Tower certainly is one of the most exalted buildings around the world.

If I may pick a few to add:

Custom House Tower, Boston - 1915. A slender classic that soars greatly with just 151m!

Freedom Tower, Miami - 1925. It perfectly incarnates that certain Cuban spirit of Miami. I'm lovin' it!

Modern skyscrapers somewhat fail to fascinate like that..

(We already had it, but...)
Last but not least:
Wrigley Building, Chicago - 1924. One of the greatest skyscrapers around the Universe.
I could chew it! Gimme a gum, now!

Nearly everything around Chicago River and esp. Magnificent Mile is just... Well, magnificent!

Im obsessed with the General Electric building (RCA building) in Midtown Manhattan.
he level of detail in the crown is just amazing, gothic. And not to mention the setbacks which slowly chip away at the base until a slender tower shoots straight up.

Beautiful building it looks like a take of the Giralda tower of Sevilles Cathedral of Santa Maria(Considered one of the most perfect towers every built).

That probably is because the Freedom Tower was built after the Giralda one
