What I love about Chi town is how in some shots, you cant get a grip on exactly how large the skyline is.

Damn you Sears tower...you make the surrounding skyscrapers feel uncomfortable with their height

wow, the chicago skyline is amazing, I can't wait for the trump to be completed, i'm just worried about the economy and how it will affect these new buildings and the chances of the proposed ones of being built. WE NEED MONEY,lol, i hope we can continue to make more great skyscrapers like the trump and many others

Great skyline shots. Trump is also making its mark on the skyline.

I agree, there are only a few new skyscrapers I really like and this is one of them. Perfect design and the cladding is coming out so good.

^ If anything, the PTT would be the lookalikes, these were built in 1962!
