So nice to see the ground floors almost finished while the tower has many floors to go!

wrabbit, I love that pano! I took a similar shot with a wide angle. That strech there must be seen in person to really appreciate it.

Nice! The view up & across the river is one of the world's great urban vistas. I get a buzz every time I see it (and I see it just about daily!)

Wow thanks for those photos wrabbit. I love how Trump Tower reflects everything.
When it's complete and the sun is shining on it it'll look fantastic.

This project has turned out very nicely save for the garage lighting and afterthought of a spire. How about commisioning Gehry for a highly abstracted, techno-baroque crown of 50 foot stainless steel acanthus leaves instead? I'd shop it in, but lack the skills.

Also, you guys take some really great pictures. Its much appreciated.

It's on this Friday at 9:00PM CST
Its a repost, but you can catch this on the regular discovery channel man, check your listings.
