You can never compare skyline of Chicago to Los Angeles' LA hardly has any famous skyscrapers or any supertalls.

Even now it looks spectacular, actually it will look better without the planed spire.

One thing I can say about Chicago is that it has class!

An elevated train going through the skyscrapers!

Most other cities have the subways going underground in the skyscraper region.

Heh, that's one way to put it. I have to say I’m impressed by how well this is turning out. It looks much more sleek in most of these angles than the renders led me to believe. And the central location works so well.

Now hopefully the spire will actually enhance the building.

From those photos, it appears that most of the skyline is short, while the John Hancock, Aon Center, Trump Tower and Sears Tower are all standing tall.
