A pretty dubious distinction from a real estate point of view!

 

OTOH, a predecessor to the now ubiquitous “needle towers” with one condo per floor in NYC.

Cool. South Water Street terminal. That skinny little spire to the left in the skyline is Mather Tower, which was the headquarters of the Mather Stock Car Co. and briefly the tallest building in Chicago when completed in 1928. The interior space within the upper octagonal spire contains the least square footage per floor of any Chicago skyscaper.
