Trump, viewed from ParkView

Shot earlier today by Joe Zekas from a 42nd floor south balcony at ParkView Condominiums. Larger version at Flickr.

I'm continually surprised by the near evanescence of Trump.

A sneak peek at the Trump Tower penthouse

Hey, Mr. Beanie Babies. Have I got a deal for you!

Just about this time last year, as the economy was racing downhill faster than an Olympic skier, the promoters of the Chicago Spire announced that Ty Warner, the reclusive founder and chief executive officer of Westmont-based toymaker Ty Inc., had signed a contract to buy the sprawling 10,000-plus-square-foot penthouse on the Spire's 141st and 142nd floors.

The asking price was $40 million, though the actual sales price was not disclosed.

The Spire remains a hole in the ground at 400 N. Lake Shore Drive, of course, but there is another nice penthouse out there: It's the one atop the almost-finished Trump International Hotel & Tower, which I got a look at recently while gathering info for my upcoming review of the 92-story skyscraper...

Upper walkway. Still working on the lower one (i.e. riverwalk).

A zen rock garden would be much cooler, but the double doors says dog park. Wonder if you'll need a key (i.e. no dirty, misbehaving public dogs allowed.)

I think a dog park is a bit more useful than a zen rock garden
