Louis Skidmore, founder of Skidmore, Owings, and Merrill, one of the largest architectural firms in the world and creator of Sears Tower, the new World Trade Center, Burj Khalifa (the tallest building in the world) and other famous buildings around the world, chose this site for his retirement home.
