I don't really think their too similar. Oddly enough, I'd say Mellon Bank Center & 311 S. Wacker have more in common than those two.

I like the similarities between US Steel (Chicago) and 300 N LaSalle (Chicago). Sorry no pics to post!

the sears tower is on more STEROIDS than barry bonds.
i see similarities between Sears tower and the Burj Dubai
probably because they are both being built by Skidmore, Owings and Merrill based in Chicago, but the sears tower still looks more bulky than Burj Dubai

I agree with the previous poster who said John Hancock is a better comparison to US Steel. Both in terms of appearance and quality. The Daley Center is also of great quality.

That is not exactly a desirable trait in a skyscraper.

Don't you want it to be inviting, not sending a message of "stay the fuck away."

US Steel Tower is quite the bad ass skyscraper



But I wouldnt want to run in the Sears in a dark alley either

BTW I dont really see too much of a resemblence either, other than the fact that theyre both black boxes

Quick aside: I watched a documentary on Sears that stated a marble facade was under serious consideration when steel prices rose abruptly during Sears' planning. Now >that< would have sucked!

I'm totally agreeing to this.

The Sears Tower is the reason the US Steel Tower is not taller than it is. US Steel was going to make their new tower taller than it ended up being, but Sears later on wanted to be in the tallest builidng, so US Steel decided to make the US Steel builidng its current height.
