I knew the trump tower was in actuality taller but in the pic at that angle it made the Heritage at Millennium Park seem taller so i just said the 'taller one on the left' because of that

Are you sure it wasn't New York? I saw something on CNN earlier today that a worker was killed at an NY skyscraper under construction.

You folks in Chicago are so lucky. This one is so much bolder, more daring, more beautiful, not to mention so much closer to completion, than the TT in Toronto. I saw this building when I was in Chicago in September 2006 and it was just a wee pup of 5 or so stories. Amazing how much it has soared since then. I'll be back in Chicago in June to fulfill a long-time dream of going to the blues festival. Any chance it will be done by then?

It will be topped out by June, not completed.
