No biggie, I figured if I take a walk most afternoons I might as well take a few pics for here while I'm out. I also snapped construction shots of:

- The Streeter (looking AWESOME, I'd like to move there next summer when it opens)
- Fairbanks at Cityfront Plaza
- Parkview West
- Something at like Wacker/LSD that looks glass-skinned
- Avenue East

Not sure whether to post them here or in the Chicago-specific forum, though

No, post them in the Chicago forums. Most of those have specific threads under the developments section if you do a little digging.

Looks like from the pictures the tower is really ready to start rising out above ground level.

I created a graphic to make it easier to track progress and show how much is left to do. I will keep this updated whenever something changes.

Trump Chicago Progress

If I need to make any changes please let me know. I want this to be as accurate as possible and since I'm not in Chicago, all I have is the web cam and recent photos.

Not until the fall, but there have been rumors it might start early.
