Now that it's topped out, is it the second tallest (roofwise) skyscraper in Chicago?

I think Willis Tower has the number one, then the Trump Tower and then Vista Tower. if I'm not mistaken. :-) although I think, that by covered roof, yes, it is the second one, but by very little difference with Trump tower, although I am not sure. Anyway, be the third or the fourth, I'm indifferent, it's a really fascinating building seen from different points of the city, it's a great addition to the Chicago skyline. :-)

Trump Tower roof is 20 feet lower than Vista according to the CTBUH (1171 vs 1191)

I heard that Arnold Schwarzenegger bought an apartment in this tower. So, he can take a cab and tell the driver: hasta la Vista, baby.

I'm assuming it is from 360 Chicago, the observation deck and lounge at the Hancock building.

His only requirement was for the developers to include a helipad on the roof in case he needs to get to the chopper

Well the whole reason skyscrapers can even exist is because someone solved the riddle of steel.
