What's the highest FAR for an office building in North America?

I'm thinking it may be the Sears Tower, Empire State Building or Chrysler. Or it could very well be the Equitable Building with a FAR of ~30. It's not merely being tall as any site that includes a plaza area will significantly impact the FAR calculation.

I found an interesting link on the topic: https://www.planning.org/pas/reports/report111.htm. It says the Empire State Building has a FAR of 32, which sounds about right. Then it goes on to list the Equitable Building as 17 and that's way off.
