I remember when this was just an open lot a little over a year ago. It's great to see some progress on this skyscraper. Between this and the Trump Tower is going to have a very nice impact on the Chicago skyline. If the Fordham Spire where to be added in to the mix it would have an even greater impact on the skyline... but we'll save that for later.

Hopefully by about time when spring rolls around this project will be out of the ground and a couple of stories taller!

I can't wait for this one either. between trump, waterview, and 300 N. LaSalle, the east-west branch of the Chicago River will be the most beautiful urban canyon in the world.

and no, waterview is two blocks west of the trump on the south side of the river.
