And, the answer for the the question is :
[STC003506] Chicago was previously a leader in the construction of skyscrapers, while being overshadowed today by the enormous structures that can be found in Dubai, Shanghai, and New York. The Home Insurance Building in Chicago, which had ten stories and was constructed between 1884 and 1885, is considered to be the first “skyscraper.” Back in the day, this was an accomplishment that set a new record for height, despite the fact that it is not particularly noteworthy today (especially when one considers that the building with the current record of 163 floors). The structure was tragically destroyed in 1931, which, strangely, was the same year that New York City’s Empire State Building was finally finished being constructed. Out with the old, in with the new and tall!
