The next transfer floor (if thats what you were talking about regarding hardest work) is fast approaching though which will take another 1-2 months to build like the first one. This is according to someone who works on the tower.

nice work. Would those top floors be penthouses do you suppose? How about an 8 floor observation deck?

I don't know. I suppose it could be residential. That upper section could have its own separate elevator that people transfer to from the main elevator. You know that I added those top 5 floors, right? I think Trump should just add this on since he's goning to 96 as it is. Then Chicago (and North America) will get another 100= floor building.

Nice pic. I think they've actually gone pretty quick since the first setback. But that's probably because I was so used to only seeing the parking levels for so long.

since i always notice random things in pics, lets list them shall we.

#1 Massive McDOnalds

#2. Effe Vodka- imported from holland.

#3. First Level after setback dosent utilize all available space. WIth how expenseve this building is per square foot, you would think trump would be putting as much floor plate as he could down.

Great Picture i_am_hydrogen! I wish we could see more top shots of the developing structure. The Trump webcam only does so much...

simply breath taking is this building in the Windy city, the cladding looks superb and the location is just so suitable for a skyscraper of this proportion. I llike how the bridges and river connect the environment and buildings together, this being the centrpoint pinnacle attraction.

Not to trail off topic …that McDonalds in that picture in fairly new actually. It's a re-model of what was once called "The Rock n' Roll McDonalds". The RnR McD's had a sort of 70’s rock theme going for it with pictures of Elvis and the Beatles and even some memorabilia from them and other various artists. This new one is the fanciest McD’s I’ve been in. You have plasma TV playing the same ol’ crap over and over while you eat some of the tables have so light show thing going on with them. Did I mention it’s two stories! Sorry folks no dollar menu at this location and expect to pay a little more for your meal than you would out in the suburbs.
