Not in Miami. Not in L.A. Not anywhere in Texas. Nowhere. It's never been done. Guests will be checking in, literally, while concrete is being pumped. The last jog in the tower on Level 51 has been completed structurally, and the sprint is on, to race that last 40+ stories to Level 92. You thought you saw SPEED before? Sit back and enjoy... the 14,000 sf tower footprint on that last section of tower will be quick as a 3-day cycle is carried out. Start your watches..
Welcome to the forum TrumpObserver . Do you have an estimted date for topping out? Do you know when the spire will be installed? Will the spire be installed in all one piece or sperate pieces? Sorry if there are too many questins but you did say fire away

Can't wait until it's completely finished. Will you guys take full skyline photos for us here at SSC with the Trump Tower? It would be greatly appreciated!

It looks great without the plastic, although blue blue color looked okay too.

The cladding is UNBELIEVABLE. I said it a 100 times and I will still say it. I think I fell in love with this cladding.

To those that are so kindly photographing this as it goes up, I hope you get us pictures as soon as all that plastic covering comes off! I cannot wait to see what it looks like on a clear day with lots of blue sky and sun reflecting off.
