I feel dizzy with its design. It'll spoil the landscape of Chicago.

I still don't know what to think of this building...I Love the way it looks..but...all his designs are SO similar...I know he has his own style..but..can't he come up with something less similar to his other buildings?
I give it a 60% chance of gettting built...I DO want to see it built like it is right now...but I doubt the final thing will look anything like the actual renders...

I like the close up renders much more than the renders in the skyline from far away.
btw...I think the base is cool looking.

I totally agree! It just doesnt flow with this tower. They should just leave the top flat.

Exactly right Aboveday.

Time for a real rendering. Needs to more than just 8 feet above Sears.

I think that the final building, if it goes up, will look a bit different.

I think it already is in the rendering.

There's already a daytime with Trump, Waterview, and FS in the picture. A night shot would be hard because Trump hasn't provided one, so we don't know the lighting, which will impact the skyline.

These renderings are wrong, downscaled. An error between 20 or 30% in size.

Renders are only meant to give an idea.
