Two Prudential Plaza

Two Prudential Plaza is currently the 6th tallest building in Chicago and the 13th tallest in the United States. Various companies are stationed in the massive building, including consulates and Chicago radio stations. Construction on the building began in 1988 and finished nearly two years later in 1990. The building is very visible in Chicago skyline from many viewpoints. It made the Aon Center building stick out less due to this building quite tall itself.

Take a look at photos below of Two Prudential Plaza below. The building is built on a Caisson foundation and is made of concrete. The building also has a pyramid roof with a spiral on top that adds to its uniqueness. This building always stands out because it is very modern and sleek. Check out more information below.
