^Thank you. I corrected that earlier by adding an extra "]", but for some reason it won't save my edit. I also have been trying to add photos to the "Random Chicago Pics" thread, but my post will also not save there. Any idea why that would be (SSP is working for me no problem)?

Observing this building after at least several months hiatus from this site, I am dazzled. This building is absolutely stunning. None of the buildings Trump has built in NYC comes close. Another benefit is the building's dual expressions, consisting both a 'harder' angular side, and a 'softer' circular side. This is nothing short of spectacular. I can't heap enough encomiums on this.

Absolutely! Of all the "supertalls" under construction in the world, this is the one I like the most. I check on it's status nearly every day.

Trump even said that this is the greatest building he's ever built

Just a question...do we expect this tall dude reaches its height by the end of Sept?

Cool pics hydrogen.

The Trump Tower in Tampa, FL hasn't even started construction yet (and probably never will)

Two questions...

Does anybody have an approximation as to how high this is right now?

And what is being build on the right in the above picture?

300 N LaSalle is to the right and I'm not sure how tall it is. I think someone said its at 80 or so like a week ago.

06wt,

Can you tell me what floor that they poured this week? The rumour of at SSP is that they are on 86. I am not sure if you returned from the Clare or not from last week.
