Tallest U.S. Skyscraper Planned For Chicago

"Like a carefully twisted ribbon or a burnished birthday candle, the new skyscraper would soar into the Chicago skyline, surpassing the nearby Sears Tower as the nation's tallest building -- and leapfrogging a tower backed by Donald Trump as the city's snazziest."
