Trump Tower Chicago - 1389'/96 fl (Com)

Height: 1,389 ft
Floor count: 96
Location: North Wabash and East Kinzie
Construction end: 2008
Architect: Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP

Website




I thought I would post a new thread for the trump tower construction as the last was up to about 700 posts which is way above the 500 limit. Here is a link to the old thread:

http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=21044

EDIT: Could a mod close the old thread please.

Here are some renderings and the latest construction photos (thanks to BVictor for the construction pics):



























Post Away!

Well now I guess we HAVE to use this thread
I can't carry over all the content from those nearly 800 posts, but I did take some of the helpful bits. Maybe the topic creator could copy and paste this in his first post in the beginning for visitors/new members to see from the start (others add things to it as well please) and then I can delete this?

wasn't it 1362 ft now not 1360ft. (A really big difference, the gap between the 2 Intl Finance Centre in Hong Kong)

I never thought I'd see the day that the Trump thread slipped to page 2. At any rate... the Wabash deck is really starting to take shape and the first concrete pour for the tower has occurred.













And on a somewhat-related note... I caught a glimpse of Bill Rancic driving down Ontario today. Sorry for the shitty pic, but, you can make out the TW (for Trump Winner) on the license plate.

A Bill Ranic sighting is worth an eProp Was that the car he won on the Apprentice?

I'm also surprised that this project's interest has dropped, even though it's actually being built.

I've been waiting for ages for some more construction pics, if this was being built in London there'd be updates every day! Not necessarily a good thing but it does mean it stays near the top of the thread listings.

What are you guys in Chicago doing all day that you can't go out and take the occasional photo?

To punish Trump for his childish behavior. Really, I'm not sure. Maybe vacation, work, too hot outside.

If you have a craving for these updates there are a lot of options in case no one here has any new shots. Just look at my first post for many different links (two of which are webcams and one of Emporis construction shots by month).

They are still doing cassion work. The site look more or less the same as it did a couple months ago.

The viaduct adjacent to Trump is being rebuilt as well. Lots of progress there but it technically isn't part of Trump proper.

You can see live updates of the site here:

The Trump thread over here has been lacking photo updates. This was posted by Jaroslaw on SSP: A historic day. Caisson drilling is finished. This afternoon (Wednesday) the last foundation crane was dismantled. Our photographer was on the scene.

Some pics today from Pandemonious - 08-19-05

As you can see, the hole is growing fast and getting enormous.


I want to operate that thing I'd do it for free, at least for one day..


The tops of the caissons clearly visible, with the rebar that will tie into the mat foundation.


Is a crane maybe going to go in that square hole down there?

I'm working on a paper model of TTC, and as a part of that I build a virtual model. Here's what I have, I does not and will not hae every ####ing detail, so don't comment on that, but how does the massing look?



BTW I threw in that last image just because no one has seen one like it yet.

Since I make spires/antennae out of painted toothpicks, there's no need to model it.
