With the help of Wikipedia.org, we have identified the tallest office buildings in the US and then checked this against our own database (as of September 2010) to find out which of these properties provide executive suites.
The top five are located in New York City, Chicago, and Los Angeles. Here are the details...
1. Willis Tower, Chicago: 8th Tallest Office Building
The Willis Tower is a 1451 ft skyscraper on South Wacker Drive, in the West Loop of Downtown Chicago. When it was completed in 1974, the 108-storey tower was the tallest in the world - a title which it held for almost 25 years.
Empire State Building - New York City
Controversy surrounded the tower when it was renamed last year. Originally built as the Sears Tower, the building was renamed in March 2009 when Willis Group Holdings Ltd, a London-based insurance broker, leased office space in the building and obtained the building’s naming rights as part of the deal. The property was officially renamed Willis Tower in July 2009.
This landmark office building provides executive suites available to rent on short-term and flexible terms. Located on the 84th floor, clients are assured excellent views of Downtown Chicago and superb amenities, including conference rooms enclosed by Liquid Crystal Glass and window offices that are individually climate controlled.
