How about Oakbrook Terrace Tower in Oakbrook Terrace, IL? Oakbrook Terrace has only 2300 people, and its tallest building is over 30 stories tall.

Itasca, IL, has only 8,000 people. Here is its skyline:


And then there's Schaumburg. Schaumburg is a bustling metropolis of 76,000 people. Here is its skyline:

Revel Casino in AC, 710 ft in a city of only 35,000 people

But Casinos seem to have an unfair advantage; however based on what I just read it is taller than any Casino in Vegas (though it sounds like the Fountainbleau would surpass it at 735 ft; not sure where that is at in construction) but is shorter than the observation tower at the Stratosphere

I honestly looked because I wasnt sure how tall it was and was curious after reading the thread. Maybe there is hope for a second skyline in the Philly CSA afterall



It is topped off btw, the second tower yet to go up

The 1st National Tower (commonly known as the Metro Tower) built in 1929, is 18 floors and 224 feet tall.

I think my old company had a regional office in the building, not far from Ohare and a Marriott basically right next door. It looks so familiar
