Wow, I didn't realize it had that far to go. It isn't my favorite building in the world but the facade is great.

I believe they pour about a floor every four days. There are about 30 floors left. That's about four more months--end of July.

Which means any day it could pass Water Tower Place as 8th tallest
in Chicago at 262m, then 900 North Michigan for 7th at 265m. Fantastic!

1) 442m - Sears Tower
2) 346m - Aon Center
3) 344m - John Hancock Center
4) 307m - AT&T Corporate Center
5) 303m - Two Prudential Plaza
6) 293m - 311 South Wacker
7) 265m - 900 North Michigan
8) 263m - TRUMP TOWER
9) 262m - Water Tower Place

Here a picture I took from the Sears Tower Skydeck on 3/11/08. I figured this was the best Chance to test out my new camera the CANON G9... Enjoy!

Please forgive the quality of this picture I zoomed in as far as the camera could go. Look closely and you can see some workers on top working!

A few more pictures I took after leaving the Sears Tower.
