Chicago’s John Hancock Building reaching into the clouds! It is 100 stories and 1,127 ft. tall and houses offices, restaurants and about 700 condos. On "The Signature Room on the 95th Floor", patrons can look out at Chicago and Lake Michigan while they dine. An annual stair climb race up the 94 floors from the Michigan Avenue level to the observation deck, called Hustle up the Hancock, is held on the last Sunday of February. The climb benefits the Respiratory Health Association of Metro Chicago: 2008 record time clocked at 9 minutes 38 seconds.
