Right around 40, with 20 to go. They're just starting with the setback floors.

I'll say. The facade looks better when the sun isn't shining directly on it. It takes on an almost blackish color.

Progress on the riverfront plaza. The material they're using is a drab tan color (aka Grand Plaza), and I think it looks awkward with the rest of the building in glass and steel. I'm hoping it all works out in the end, but hard to tell from the render: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showpo...&postcount=192

This building totally took me by surprise. I noticed it a while ago coming out of the ground, but had no idea it was going to be this tall. The core appeared maybe 100-200' smaller than Trump and from what I read here there are 20 more floors?

I will have to get some pictures to post comparisons.

Great to see this one moving so quick...seems like only months ago they demolished that parking garage. This will definitely add some more height to Chicago's skyline.

Beautiful shot! Awesome angle, good detail, deep tones (particularly the red).
