They do on occasion. I have only seen it in red so far. I hope they coordinate it more often with Willis and Hancock... All 3 lit up at the same time look so amazing.

Riverwalk looks great, I think it's an excellent example of how you want your tall building to integrate in its surroundings. Unfortunately, no one seems to be renting it. If I was Trump I would try to nail one good bar as an anchor tenant, I think it has way more potential as a night life center than a shopping galery.

Trump PART 1

Hey Guys,

Here are some few shots taken from the 14th floor (swimming pool and gym), 34th and 89th floor.
I guess the 89th floor photos might be unique on this forum. The whole floor is a 14,260 sf2 penthouse and has more than 7 huge bedrooms.


Enjoy:

I'll be curious to see who posts the first pics...

Quote:
If all goes as planned, the spire atop Chicago’s Trump International Hotel & Tower will finally light up Wednesday night, joining the city’s other skyline giants in a blaze of cloud-scraping color.

Shortly after sunset at 8:29 p.m., newly-installed, energy-efficient LED lights will illuminate the spire atop the riverfront hotel and condominium tower, which is Chicago’s second-tallest building. They will color the 227-foot-tall spire in red, white and blue, honoring Independence Day. The color scheme will continue through July 11."
...

"The lighting of the spire will mark the final completed element of the Trump skyscraper, which was first occupied in early 2008."

Ehhh...disappointing. Only the spire is lit. I was hoping for some lighting on the crown. I've got a panoramic view of all of the other towers from my window and this pales in comparison to the others. Too bad.

On the bright side, the light of the sunset on the skyline was spectacular.

true it was pretty disappointing but it was cool to see it change colors every few seconds... Maybe when they get some more tenants they'll light up the whole crown and spire, now that would be something to see

A couple shots of the spire, in red and blue. Not nearly as awesome as the double-lightning shot though.

(And sorry, I can't link directly to the pics. The Trib website has all sorts of trickery going on, to prevent such things, and I don't feel compelled to dig through all the source code and JavaScript to find 'em.)
