Fetch Brother Palin !

After consideration in cloister, we brothers feel it is firmly rooted in the modern. The clumpy lower portions steal the height, sadly. Strangely the SWFC looks clumpy from some angles yet this only accentuates it's height!
However both remind us of the 'Norman Massive' type of church tower so popular in the late middle ages.

The shine on Chicago Trump is the best of the modern era and it will serve as a counterpoint to the altogether more spine-tingling Chicago Spire.

Perhaps if the setbacks had been more subtle, as on the Burj, it would look less like a Python tribute.

Must go and pray now,
Blessyou all,
Tim

sorry this is kind of off topic, but I know how Chicago is so amazing, so I decided to post a link to Kanye's song "Homecoming" shows great chicago photography and even the Trump in a part of the video.

The portion originally posted by BVictor1 and quoted by Reinsdorf Sucks is a work of art, exeptionally beautiful. I love how the mechanical level cladding is done. Some of the views appear to be an already completed supertall!!

Looks great at night. Even though it hasnt reached its full height, it impresses in the skyline a lot.
