Nice shot. I take the train from the Harlem platform (Metra) and I can only see a fraction of the detail visible in your view. It's amazing how much of a difference a few miles makes. Despite that, 300 N. Lasalle and Trump are still very prominent.

I really love this building, and where it's situated in it's bridge/river corner. Hopefully it will be well landscaped.

Both cranes started and ground level, and have been added to until their current (final ?) height.

Maybe because the tower is almost topped out.

Nice tower for Chicago.
