The Trump Tower in Chicago is now the sixth tallest building in the world. It moved up from seventh place without making a single change to the building.

It gained a spot because the council on tall buildings, which decides such things changed the rules.

The official height was measured from the front entrance. But under the new rules, it is measured for the lowest pedestrian entrance to the top. Using those guidelines, the trump tower gained 27 feet.
