I have a feeling that is going to become one of the more iconic photo spots for Chicago. In other words, its amazing and we'll be seeing a lot more of it when its done.

That shot has a feeling of 1960's/70's film colouring to it on the side buildings with Trump shooting up out of 2008!

I really like this spot on top of the El platform, it gives such a great perspective of the tower, something you can't get from along the river.

I believe you are the only one who just thinks of the Sears Tower when thinking of Chicago.

Considering it was a German who asked the question this reply isn't very helpful.

Well, according to his name he is a skyscraper freak. So I assume he would know 1,000 feet is considered supertall status. So 900 isn't too far off.
