I think Emporis recently changed it to 96 floors, and the people who go over the blueprints and whatnot are usually very thorough. Perhaps before the change they did not consider some levels as floors

I believe it's because the mezzanine levels are being counted as seperate floors.

I couldn't help myself. Here are some shots from yesterday. I was basically trying to study the texture of the building in a different lighting condition. That is what I like about the glass thus far, and glad that it's being installed now. Like Steely said, it is a moody building because of the glass.

Tell me what you think?

I didn't realize until yesterday that it appears 2 floors are being built at the same time.

The reflection of 330 North Wabash on the glass facade being installed on Trump Tower - 2006-11-27


I'm liking the texture of this building

when I first saw it, it confused the hell out of me as well, be it's just the roof of the ramp.

as for getting better images of the setback, that would be quite difficult. directly to the east is the wrigley building and to the north, there is a residential building.
