Informations

The Cairo Tower (Arabic: ??? ????????, Borg Al-Q?hira) is a free-standing concrete tower in Cairo, Egypt. At 187 m (614 ft), it has been the tallest structure in Egypt and North Africa for about 50 years. It was the tallest structure in Africa for ten years until 1971, when it was surpassed by Hillbrow Tower in South Africa. One of Cairo's well-known modern monuments, sometimes considered Egypt's second most famous landmark after the Pyramids of Giza, it stands in the Gezira district on Gezira Island in the River Nile, close to downtown Cairo.

Informations

Two Prudential Plaza is a 64-story skyscraper that was built in the Loop area of Chicago, Illinois, United States in 1990. At 995 feet (303 m) tall, it is currently the sixth-tallest building in Chicago and the seventeenth-tallest in the U.S., being only five feet from 1,000 feet, making it the closest of any building under 1,000. The building was designed by the firm Loebl Schlossman & Hackl, with Stephen T. Wright as the principal in charge of design. It has been honored with 8 awards, including winning the Best Structure Award from the Structural Engineers Association of Illinois in 1995.At the time of completion Two Prudential was the world's tallest reinforced concrete building. Its distinctive shape features stacked chevron setbacks on the north and south sides, a pyramidal peak rotated 45°, and an 80-foot (24 m) spire. The building is attached to One Prudential Plaza (formerly known as the Prudential Building). Without its spire, the building's height is still slightly greater than that of One Prudential Plaza's pinnacle.In May 2006, BentleyForbes, a Los Angeles-based real estate investment firm, run by Frederick Wehba and his family purchased Two Prudential Plaza, along with its sister property, One Prudential Plaza for $470 million.In 2015, BentleyForbes defaulted on the mortgage for the towers due to the Great Recession and New York-based investors 601W Companies and Berkley Properties took control of the property after investing more than $100 million in equity to recapitalize. BentleyForbes, the prior controlling owner of the towers, continues to have an interest in the owning partnership.The building is also the new home of the Chicago Tribune and tronc, Inc. after leaving Tribune Tower in July 2018.
