Chicago continues to see a surge in new high rise buildings with 40 buildings of 50 stories or higher either been built, under construction or in the development stage since the turn of the century. It's a surge in high-rise construction that hasn't been seen here since the 1960s and 1970s when the Sears Tower, John Hancock Center and other buildings helped give the city one of the most distinctive skylines in the world.
And while there is a flurry of high-rise construction elsewhere in the United States, particularly in New York, Miami and Las Vegas, the tallest of the tall are going up in Chicago. Of the three tallest buildings under construction in the world, two are here in the windy city, more than a century after the world's first skyscraper — the nine-story Home Insurance Building
— went up in 1885. Chicago does love a tall buildings.
