The impact this will have from Grant Park is huge. It fills a void and continues the wall of buildings around the corner to the Michigan Ave wall.

You have to go pretty far to find a hill taller than the Sears Tower. I think possibly Northern Minnesota (the highest points of Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana and Michigan are all lower)

Mt Avron in the UP of Michigan is the closest I believe. 1,979 feet.

Good call, however Chicago sits at roughly 600 feet above sea level so by that measurement Sears is no less than 2,050 feet tall

Well, if we are going to get technical about it, are we going by roof height or top of the antenna?

If antennae/spires count Trump Tower is almost 2,000 feet as well! Great to finally put behind us this whole New York vs Chicago thing. Because Denver clearly has the tallest skyscrapers

^not for much longer, though. It is getting demolished this year due to lack of funding and interest, per the wiki-link.
