Tower 42, London

Facts- Tower 42 (then known as the NatWest Tower) was the tallest building in the United Kingdom for 10 years, from its completion in 1980 to the topping-out of One Canada Square in November 1990. - National Westminster Bank initially planned a tower of 137m (450ft), but after it retained Richard Seifert as chief architect in 1964 he submitted a preliminary design at 197m (647ft). The proposal called for demolition of two historic buildings - the City of London Club (1834) and the small National Provincial Bank. After prolonged investigation, in 1964 the Environmental Secretary upheld a preservation order on the banking hall, but permitted demolition of the City of London Club, and the tower's height was reduced to 183m (600ft). - On completion, Tower 42 was the world's tallest cantilevered building. - External cleaning of the building is provided in part by an automated mechanical cleaning system. - The three cantilevered sections hang from the building's central core and are asymmetrical in height.

20 North Michigan Avenue

This 8 story Building Stands across the street from Millennium Park on Michigan Avenue. Also comes with the subway station entance directly in front of the building.

6 North Michigan Avenue

Not quite the building it once was, Six North Michigan Avenue is still an essential part of Chicago's beloved Michigan Avenue cliff. At first glance it appears to be any of a dozen interchangeable buildings from the South Loop, but upon closer inspection, it has some merit. In spite of being more than one hundred years old, Six North Michigan retains some of its stately features. A tall central shaft with three columns of wide windows are flanked by two lesser wings of narrower windows. The arrangement fools the eye into thinking the north and south portions are set back from the main facade.

Los Angeles, California

Aon Center

Known as the United California Plaza for from 1974 to 1984, Known as the First Interstate Tower from 1984 to 1998, then known as 707 Wilshire from 1998 to 2003 for when the building had no logos atop at all, the Aon Center, like Many of Downtown's Skyscrapers, has had a long history of Name Changes. The tall slender tower is 858 feet high, 62 floors, and was California's tallest from 1974 to 1989, when the (then First Interstate World Center) US Bank Tower was completed. In May 1988, a fire swept through the 12th floor, destroying 5 floors, injuring 40, and unfortunantly killing 1. Today the Building's main tenants are Aon, and Wells Fargo.

The steel arch bridge was completed in 1931 after three years of construction, and is designed by master architects Othmar Ammann and Cass Gilbert. The main span is 510 meters long and was the world's longest from the day of completion to 1977, when surpassed by New River Gorge Bridge.

The deck is 46 meters above water level from the highest point and carries an average of 23,400 vehicles a day across the Kill Van Kull strait. In this model, the number of support columns on the approach ramps is reduced to half of the original number, to simplify the already complex model.
