Topped Out! The flag was hoisted at noon, just in time to see the start of the Air and Water Show from the top. About 1:20 they hoisted a bucket of concrete, paused (presumably for speeches), then brought the bucket up to the roof about 1:30.

Great pictue, Akira. I've come to a conclusion: this is not a building. It is a sculpture.

Chicago must be the Mission Impossible city; somehow we have managed to give Donald Trump class. That's an accomplishment that New York or Atlantic City could never impose.

^Because some consider a building to be T/O when the roof line is reached, others when the spire is completed. We're going by the latter standard.
