I thought of putting this in the homes category, but figured Chicago would be better. New home, looking for a 2020 picture of the Chicago skyline for my office and also a black and white picture of the Tribune/Wrigley building side by side.

Would love the skyline would to have VISTA, etc. Let me know if anyone knows of a link. Thank you very much!

I've always wondered about the names and addresses of the major buildings in this photo.

Thanks.

None of the buildings have nicknames, just official names. There are only a couple I can think of off the top of my head that have actual nicknames. This image here has most of them labeled. Not shown in the image below, but shown above is Trump Tower (round glass building with single antenna at top with red light).

The Fifth Third bank branch at 87th Street and about Major Ave. in Burbank, IL, has two office walls with wallpaper of a photo of downtown Chicago, likely taken from an aircraft at about 1500 foot elevation (I'm assuming this because it is taken at a level in line with the top of the Willis Tower, looking at it from the west, such that the museum campus and lake is in the background). Almost as if it were taken from the rooftop of an imaginary building the same size as Willis, if you can imagine it. Very impressive, and is in black and white. Are you looking for something like this, or individually-framed photos?

I'd bet a dollar to a doughnut that there is a wallpaper company out there that will take a high-resolution photo and make wallpaper out of it. I've seen a lot of framed prints of photos of downtown Chicago in my travels, they are likely available online.

From the left, the taller-looking ones in that frame are the Legacy at Millennium Park, Trump International, Two Prudential Plaza, Aon Center and Blue Cross Blue Shield Tower (the one with the NBA 2020 on the windows)

The other prominent one is the Crain Communications building aka the Diamond Tower among some other colorful nicknames.

Trump and Legacy are on Wabash Avenue. The rest are at or near the corner of Michigan and Randolph. You're looking mainly at that intersection.




Meanwhile this is Tribune and Wrigley towers, or part of them
