The one second from right reminds me of the Al Hamra Tower in Kuwait. Talk about ahead of it's time.

Recycled a third time in Chicago as Two Prudential Plaza. http://skyscraperpage.com/diagrams/?buildingID=32

Interesting it is the tallest of the three but less of an impact on Chicago's skyline because of the other tall Chicago buildings and its location.

Kevin, the renovation to Reliant (added 120ft+) was actually designed by Keating. Must have liked the hole idea so much he decided to try it out there.
