Trump International Hotel & Tower gets city permit after delay
By Susan Diesenhouse


After a delay of several weeks, the Trump International Hotel & Tower on Friday received a city permit to occupy the 339-unit hotel portion of the approximately $775 million project.

"We're glad to have this done and excited to get the hotel up and running," said Donald Trump Jr., executive vice president of development and acquisitions for the Trump Organization, developer of the 92-story project.

The crane for Waterview is circled in teal. It hasn't risen high enough to be visible from that angle.


It will be considerably taller than it's neighbor.

Chicago will have such a stunning skyline after all these towers will be built - especially the Spire. There is no second one to that.
