Trump Tower Chicago

The Trump Tower Chicago, finished in 2008, is the 11th tallest building in the world. At one point Donald Trump had planned for it to be the world's tallest, but after the September 11th attacks plans were changed.

The building was designed by American architect Adrian Smith who also designed Burj Khalifa in Dubai (tallest building in the world) and Jin Mao Tower in Shanghai (the 12th tallest building in the world).

Random fact, the final confrontation scene between Batman and The Joker in The Dark Knight was filmed in the under construction Trump Tower Chicago.
