Trump International Hotel & Tower
The Trump International Hotel and Tower is a skyscraper condo-hotel in downtown Chicago, Illinois.The building, called for businessman and later U.S. president Donald Trump, was designed by architect Adrian Smith of Skidmore, Owings and Merrill. Bovis Lend Lease constructed the 98-story structure, which reaches a height of 1,388 ft (423.2 m) including its spire, its roof topping out at 1,171 ft (357 m). It's next to the main branch of the Chicago River, with a view of the entrance to Lake Michigan past a series of bridges across the river. The building received publicity once the winner of the first season of The Apprentice reality television show, Bill Rancic, chose to handle the construction of the tower over handling a new Trump National Golf Course and resort in Los Angeles. Trump announced in 2001 that the skyscraper would become the tallest building in the world, but following the September 11 attacks that same year, the architects scaled back the building's plans, and its design underwent several revisions.
Central Plaza is a 78-storey, 374 m (1,227 ft) skyscraper completed in August 1992 at 18 Harbour Road, in Wan Chai on Hong Kong Island in Hong Kong. It's the third tallest tower in town after 2 International Finance Centre in Central and the ICC in West Kowloon. It was the tallest building in Asia from 1992 to 1996, until the Shun Hing Square was constructed in Shenzhen, a neighbouring city. Central Plaza surpassed the Bank of China Tower as the tallest building in Hong Kong until the completion of 2 IFC. Central Plaza was also the tallest reinforced concrete building in the world, until it was surpassed by CITIC Plaza, Guangzhou. The building utilizes a triangular floor plan. On the top of the tower is a four-bar neon clock that indicates the time by exhibiting different colors for 15-minute periods, blinking at the change of the quarter. An anemometer is installed on the tip of the construction's mast, at 378 metres (1,240 feet ) above sea level. The mast has a height of 102 m (335 feet ). Additionally, it houses the world's greatest church inside a skyscraper, Sky City Church.Source: Wikipedia
