I just can't see that happening at this point in the game. Trump is a just little over half completed and the last setback and floors for Trump are going to go up very quickly. This is due to the small floorspace the last section of the tower has. If I'm not mistaken I believe Trump should be just about topped out by mid 2008 like June or July. I'd expect Waterview to be about less than half way done by then with some cladding.

construction should actually begin to move faster after the first non-slanted
floor.

you mean the setback ?. yes it will go faster, but it will take a while to complete the setback, just like the trump tower.

A wonderful thread

This building will be gorgeous! Bravo to Chicago! This thread has been one of the very best ... frequent updates and photos documenting the progress of this construction. The most recent picture - with the autumn trees illuminated by subshine was lovely ... thank you HarryC!!! Chicagoans are very lucky to live in a city overlooking a magnificent lake, with a river flowing through it, a city of differant and distinct neighborhoods, great restaurants, marvelous cultural venues and world class museums.
