Battle of the Buildings

Posted: Updated:


The battle over claim to the tallest building in the United States could be settled Tuesday.

One of the contestants is the new "One World Trade Center," which claims 1,776 feet tall.

But not so fast, says the city of Chicago, the Willis Tower, at 1,450 feet, might technically be taller.

At issue is whether a 408-foot spire on top of the World Trade Center tower counts toward its total height.

The Chicago-based council on tall buildings and urban habitat is set to rule on the issue Tuesday.
