The John Hancock Center in Chicago, Illinois is 1,500 ft from the base to the very top. (pinnacle included).
Three World Trade Center is 1,240 feet (pinnacle included), therefore that makes this a "mini John Hancock Center."
-- And yes, it does have those Sears Tower features because of the setbacks.
