Well, there's was this small town called New York.

Bit as far as I'm concerned, Chicago is leaving New York far behind now.
The new projects in Chicago are so fresh and inspiring.
Not to begin about sheer height.

And it looks like Trump Tower will make an appearance in the film.
I hate superheroes. That's just me though. I WILL watch the movie only to see the Trump Tower. Otherwise it would be a waste of my money, I absolutely despise any and all forms of superheroes.

By the time the movie comes out you can just...ya know, look at the finished product anytime you want if you live in the city, or look at numerous pictures and videos online.

It's like going to see X-Men to see the Statue of Liberty.

So, you prefer only boring, monotonous architecture?

I suppose you would rather see a cookie-cutter city where buildings all have the same look and feel?

Some of the best developments that define a city are quite different than the surrounding developments.... In Chicago, the John Hancock Center is the first that comes to mind.

3-15 stories of parking space? That sounds insane. In Finland we hardly even have buildings higher than 15 stories Sure there's gonna be much cars to park, but I doubt it's gonna be that much. Perhaps 3 floors is a closer to the right count.

Wow... That's impressive. Is it possible to buy / rent a spot whether u work or stay in the building or not? 40 grand for one spot, that is way too expensive

they start at 40 and go up to as much as 80! im sure there is parking for hotel guests (for a fee of course) and owners can rent the spot if they wish.

I assume that the hotel company is buying a bunch of those spaces for guest use. Also, the residents will be able to buy spaces for their use (if they so desire), as, I assume, normal commuters will be able to, too.

I do note that even here in little Appleton, there are apartments that do NOT include parking spaces, which can be rented separately from other nearby land owners. Other area apartment complexes have enclosed garages that can be rented separately, too.

well i do agree with Chicago's building are inspiring..but the land that Mastered the Skyscraper...the Wall of Skyscrapers...and the density of skyscrapers is on the move...with 3 1000ft+ (WTC) buildings...as well as the completed NY Times...the BoA two more in which are 1000 footers...and dont for get the Midtown Complex which may feature 1 or 2 1000ft(s)..so New York might not have the tallest in the U.S. but by no means lacks height.

Not to turn this into New York vs Chicago version 21532164261 but BoA is 814ft to the roof, New York times is 714ft, and I believe most, if not all, of the midtown complex buildings won't be out of the ground for half a decade.

All lovely buildings though.

EDIT I love New York.
