Like colemonkee said earlier, from this angle we'll be able to see both Trump and Waterview underconstruction.

Nice work as always.

Lets hope he's planning well with his money this time. I would hate to see an American icon like Trump go under.

It's kind of difficult to pinpoint the core at this time because the levels are uneven and things are kind of everywhere right now. Once the structure begins to rise above the main level, I belive that it will be more distinguishable.

Shouldn't the thread say 1362 feet since that is the official height?

it's progressing quite fast for such a massive building

that crane should be a highlight itself, 1386ft, ****

there's something fishy about the diagram though
the ferris whell shown at 500 ft is 10 times smaller than the 1386ft crane

There was an error with that diagram. The Ferris wheel is only 100-200 feet in diameter.

If you have a spare $28 million or so for the top penthouse It might not be available anymore, however.

remember Chicago don't count spires... meaning At&T building not a "real" 1000 footer in CHicago's eyes, rather a 887 foot building...

But on the contary, isn't the TTC's roof top 1,131 feet? I heard the roof was extended to be taller than the JHC but shorther than the Aon Center.
