not yet, when they attach its spire, it will, although the ESB's antenna will still be taller. Also, the person on the ESBs highest floor will always be looking down at the person on Trumps highest floor if they were next to each other. The Info on that page is wrong, it's topped out to its roof (which isn't taller than the ESB), but not to the spire (which will make it the tallest)

While Chicago almost has 1100 highrises, I think its impressive to know that NY has 5,600 highrises and 150 are approved for construction this year alone..

All of Chicago's new development really give it a futuristic look. It seems that the new trend in the city seems to be simple but elegant.

Trump, Museum One, The Spire, Aqua, and many of the new highrises all look like they belong in a city of the future.

Too bad the prospects for the Spire (and Waterview) don't look very good. Waterview will probably remain a 26 floor hunk until they can get financing to at least build out the hotel. I think the Spire will get built on a delayed timetable. Too much money already sunk. I think a turning economy, whenever that is, will revive it.

Additionally, the Waldorf would be a very futuristic building if built. New building (marina, housing) for the Olympics, if we get them, would no doubt add to the feel.
