Chicago is trying to break a record that will take them some time.

The Old Chicago Main Post Office Redevelopment is a proposed 20-acre project on a lot located along the Chicago River on the southwest side of Downtown Chicago, Illinois.

It is to be constructed in phases over a period of one decade that will include the renovation of Chicago's historic Old Main Post Office building as well as residential, retail, entertainment and office space.

The plan includes several towers, the tallest one being a proposed 120-story mixed use twin tower skyscraper that will stand about 2,000 feet high to the roof, which would make it the tallest building in the United States.

The tower would be over 500 feet taller than the Sears Tower, and will contain office, residential, and hotel space. It will also include two 60-story residential towers as well as a 40-story hotel.

Can't wait to see how it ends up looking!
