“Supertall building construction continues apace—especially in New York City, where workers topped out the 1,396-ft-tall 432 Park Avenue residential tower, designed by Rafael Vinoly Architects. Work has begun on another Big Apple “supertall”: the 1,775-ft Nordstrom Tower, designed by Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture. In Chicago, schematic design is underway for an 89-story building, designed by Studio Gang Architects.”

Why should you read this? Personally, I’m a sucker for supertall stories (and have written more than a few myself). ENR, December 2014
