The Willis Tower (once known as the Sears Tower) in Chicago, with its trademark dark aluminum and bronze-tinted, glare-decreasing glass, was the tallest building in the world for almost 25 years. Finished in 1974, Willis Tower set the standard for supertall high rises the world over, both in its distinguished look and smooth styling. With 416,000 square meters of space, the building is relatively substantial for its height. To give you some perspective, the building’s foundation and initial 50 stories sprawls over a full city block before the tower narrows upwards. The following information provides more details about the building:
