Hi everyone! I went to Chicago over the weekend for some things going on and I had so planned to visit the Trump site and get some updates but alas, we didn't have any time to do that. I *think* I saw it from the highway we took out of town but as we were underground, I could only see the main columns and the corebox.

Sorry, maybe next time.

Trump in town

Trump says sales towering

By Susan Diesenhouse

Tribune staff reporter
Published May 10, 2006, 3:00 PM CDT

Real estate developer Donald Trump today said sales have been brisk for the 92-story Trump International Tower and Hotel being built on the Chicago River, formerly the site of the Chicago Sun-Times.

"We're here to tell you how well we're doing," said Trump in a news conference here. "We sold 78 to 79 percent" of the units valued at about $725 million, "almost the cost of construction," he added.

"It's a great tribute to Chicago and what's happening here," he said.

Trump, who was flanked by his son and daughter, all dressed in basic black, estimated total development costs at about $775 million.

"We expect to sell out all the units within the next 12 to 18 months, prior to the opening,"
Trump said, adding that he will keep a few for his family.

He said residents will begin taking occupancy in the tower early in 2008.

With this visit, Trump had been expected to "create buzz" to crank up sales for the Tower. One analyst, Gail Lissner, vice present of Appraisal Research Counselors, said the project was not in trouble.

"With occupancy still about three years out, that's not a troubled project," she said.

I always try to look towards the cranes going down LSD when I'm visiting my sister who lives in Chicago. It seems like a very small space to be building such a large tower when I drove right by it, but I didn't get a close up look at it...anyway, this tower is going to be sweet!
