WBEZ Listeners Talk Supertall Skyscraper Slated For Chicago

One of the many tidbits that puffs up Chicago’s architectural pride: we’re the birthplace of the skyscraper. And from the massive stones of the Rookery Building-built in 1886-to the stainless steel of the Trump tower, the city’s skyscraper fraternity is about to get a new member.

GUEST:

Danny Ecker from Crain’s Chicago Business
