ftl, are you sure about that? It seems that the floor you have labeled as the new setback floor is actually mechanical floor 2. I'm just suspicious because we are supposed to have about another 3-4 weeks until the transfers are done...

also, I counted

Look at the difference in ceiling heights between what I labeled as #1 / 2 and the one below it...Clearly those two floors are much taller than the others below them...Which would indicate the two mech floors, right?

I hope you are right, but in the render you can see there is one floor below the mech floors which is also very tall, so there should be 3 taller floors below the setback

I may be mistaken I was comming home from work today and I just so happened to glance up at good ol' Trump as I was driving home (I don't recommend taking your eye's off the road for a second here in Chicago!) Have they started the rebar formwork for the level above this setback? Is the load transfer floor completed?

That show came out a long time ago.

It's been discussed a couple times.

Aw well, we knew the mechanical floors would take a while.

This tower is simply superb.

At this point the best thing about Trump is the buildings around it.
