I remember a McDonalds in Harbor City, Calif it has 2 stories and a huge FISH TANK in the middle. One down the street from me near Knott's has only 1 story but a model train zipping along near the ceiling. I think it is Effen Vodka????? Sorry for the off topicness.

It appears that the large square columns are continuing all the way up. I see the smaller round columns at the setback. This looks like one tough building.....

The pic with only the part above the setback is absolutely stunning. Seeing the background is amazing and causes alot of replies about McDonalds!!!!
I now see the shape of this building it is perfect for the location.

Ok back on topic...

Here's a quick snapshot of Chicago's beloved Trump Tower through the Tribunes webcam. I enlarged it just a bit for better viewing purposes. FYI if any would like to save the images from the Trump cam's website all you have to do is press print/screen on your keyboard and paste the image on to paint.

It seems like nobody knows at this point. A couple of months ago, when I was following the Trump Tower Toronto thread, it seemed like it would be July of this year, but this may have changed by now. Your best bet would be to periodically check out the Trump Tower Toronto thread, which you can find here: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...386744&page=22

Here's a picture grabbed today from the Trump Webcam earlyier this morning. From what it seems not too much really has been going on externals with the tower. Sadly no new floors or cladding on the transfer floors. I think the climate over here in Chicago has a lot to do with the slow progress. Perhaps there's more going on in side the tower than on the outside? Enjoy
