A New Chicago Landmark?

Donald J. Trump wants to build the world's tallest building in Chicago.

"This is a town architecturally influenced by the hands of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Frank Lloyd Wright.So what is Donald J. Trump doing here? The plan is to demolish the seven- story Sun-Times building, a squat, coffin-shaped box on North Wabash Avenue that for years has been the ugly duckling on a river of urban architectural splendor, and to erect Trump Tower Chicago."
