One of the things that impresses me the most about this building, is the cleanliness of the construction. Truly amazing how the construction sections look clean enough to sleep there. Most contruction sites in my area remain filthy with dust and garbage months after the inauguration, with small details being completed even after tenants have moved in. Cheers for that!

Yes the hotel portion is open to the public alongside a restaurant and bar on the 16th floor. I believe not all the rooms in the hotel are ready for occupancy quite yet but don't quote me.

Yeah it seems many of the construction sites in Chicago are neat. The Spire site the contractor actually lines up the equipment, and the Trump site from the beginning is a study in neatness. From the previous pics, the glass is just amazing. I know some undefined person called it like circus glass, but the so called circus glass effect makes it even better. Excellent job and beautiful tower!!! Can't wait to see the spire!!!

According to the scematic diagram of Culwulla.

If you look to the diagram of Culwulla there is still a long way to go, before we reached the top (not the spire included). The cranes are perfect to see how fare we have to go!
