So it'd be:
1. Central Park Tower
2. Sears Tower
3. 111 W 57th
4. 270 Park Ave
5. Tribune East
Or go by floor count of finished/almost finished. Willis is currently 8th in the world and Tribune would be 7th. There's a bunch on hold though.

490,000 FCA US LLC Headquarters
416,000 Willis Tower
389,079 CCTV Headquarters
372,000 Merchandise Mart
334,451 Aon Center
325,279 One World Trade Center
325,000 55 Water Street

As NY Guy pointed out each of the old WTCs were about 436,000 sqm each, larger than Willis.

The new Old Post Office is 2.5 million square feet and 232,000 square meters, by far the largest office project of this cycle in Chicago.
Number 1 and 2 on that list probably shouldn't even be included tbh. Both are basically a collection of large buildings connected by a series of hallways (the Pentagon's being much more organized of course lol)

McCormick Place has 2.6 million SF of exhibit space, but that's not including who knows how much back of house and logistics space. But, like the Pentagon or FCA HQ, it's a complex, not a single building.

The Sears Tower is still the "biggest" single building on Earth even if it's not the tallest anymore. It's simply gargantuan and there probably will never be a need to build anything on its scale ever again. Any other supertalls that approach it's SF only do so due to large malls attached to their base, again making them complexes, not single stand alone structures.

Just pulling up the diagram. The CITIC (China Zun) Tower has more sqft at 4.6M (427K sqm). It's mixed use though, but definitely one solid structure. It's massive in person even right by the enormous CCTV crazy boi.

The Tribune will still be an absolute unit. Best news since the quarantine. Living a few blocks away I'll see it daily (eventually).

Too bad the building will never be occupied close to half capacity like most of China's megatalls.

Right, which is why Chicago's building booms are more sustainable. We build within our means much better than the rest of the world

I think they should surprise everyone and make this thing 1,492 feet tall, the symbolism will go well with the WTC (despite the stupid antenna). No reason to not pull something last minute.

Yea, it almost builds too little I feel, same with the US in general.

A future building could be 1,809ft to remember Abram Lincoln. Would work perfectly for the "Land of Lincoln"

Lincoln was not born in Illinois. Better to make it 1,790, which would surpass 1WTC and honor the year Jean Baptiste Point du Sable recorded his first night at the mouth of the Chicago River very near the site of Tribune Tower East.

The Sears Tower is already taller than WTC1.

Get out of here with that antenna/spire business.

I agree but tips do count for something

Central Park Tower is real king of the USA

This is true, but lincoln spent more than half his life living in Illinois, his military service was with the illinois militia, he was a US congressman representing a district of Illinois, his memorial is in illinois. If we can't claim him for illinois, no one can.

It should be 1865 feet tall. A better year for the remembrance of Lincoln.

Nah. There's plenty of memorials for Lincoln in the city and state already. Heck, he's on every single drivers license plate. He has the Memorial in DC, his face on the penny, the five, and Mt. Rushmore. He's fine.

Definitely Dusable or those other wacky guys. Really though, some other European was bound to have discovered it, so Dusable wins.

But definitely not Ogden haha

What about calling it the Chicago tower and making it 2008 ft tall to commentate Obama celebrating his victory in grant park

I'd prefer commemorating the Cubbies winning the series in 2016.
