Chicago has ranked fourth in a listing of the world's 100 most booming skylines. I guess we should be proud of such good placement, but if it was based on looks and not on the number of floors in a high-rise, we all know we'd wipe the floor with NYC. Maybe Trump Tower Chicago will be good for something after all.
