They've jumped the cranes.

Once they complete the transfer floors, then it will be even with IBM

I'm pretty sure that will be open to the public as a terrace for the restaurant

Chicago's Trump Tower on Microsoft Paint (REALISTIC!)


I copied and pasted from the Skyscraperpage.com Diagram Section and after painting some vegetation and sky color, I came up with this.

This is to how Trump would look if you would to be stading on the Lake Shore Drive. This is looking from a SE angle.

Please share your thoughts.

Amazing photos Jayskyline, thank you very much. They give not only a good idea of Trump but shows perfectly how it contrast with its surroundings. Well done.

I know this thread needs another image like it needs a hole in the head, but this building is hard to resist!

So shiny, like a new toy for the whole city. Shiny like a '60s hot rod.

I live in the northwest suburbs. Could we borrow it for a day or two of play if we promise to bring it back in one piece?
