OMG from that aerial photo the Trump Tower's base appears it has twice the area of Sears Tower, the base area is HUGE, from some of those photos the Trump Tower appears like a completed Supertall because the cladding is being installed faster than I have seen normally!!

The river location couldn't be better, either!!

This tower looks wonderful. I thought it would come out looking kinda bland but the shape and the way the glass reflects the surroundings is beautiful.
