Retro and Hydro...your pics are absolutely majestic! Question, will there be another setback before the project reaches it's final height?

Interestingly, the two scales coincide at -40. -42C is -43F.

I noticed the Trump Tower in the new Batman movie trailer, "The Dark Knight." Thought it was very cool. Appears to be a while back during the second setback, right after the second set of mechanical floors.

This beauty keeps getting better by the day.

When I first saw the renders, this tower just wasn't my cup of tea, but in reality this is turning out as an iconic building.

I think it looks better than the renders. Unlike some that would look beautiful from the rendering but won't look that good once finished.

Here is one I took earlier today in the snow. Trump is probably my favorite tower going up in Chicago right now, every time I walk by I try to snap a photo.
