- Proposed in 1968 by developer Lee M. Romano as the third phase of a large mixed use development in the Chicago suburb of Schaumburg. Would have been located at the intersection of Interstate 290 and Higgins Road, across the street from Woodfield Mall. The tower would have held 113 stories of office and retail in a squared tube design like the nearby Aon Center or New York's World Trade Center. An off-center antenna and broadcast facilities were planned for the top of the building.

- Financing was never found and the entire plan was cancelled. The site is now the location of a retail center and mid-rise office buildings.
