Tallest Skyscraper 3D Model Collection

Since One World Trade Center eclipsed the Empire State Building as New York's tallest building this week on its way to becoming North America's tallest building, I thought I'd share a collection I call Tallest Skyscraper.

It contains all the currently modeled record holders for this title. Seen above is the Singer Building, which stood in New York from 1908 to 1968. Get a geo version of the model here.

Download the model from that page and open it in Google Earth; once there, you can right-click on the One Liberty Plaza building and choose "Hide Building" to view the Singer Building in its original context.
