This tower is breathtaking by the material used and its ultra glossy finish. Superb.
Taken last thursday while touring the city.

Keep perspective in mind. The Chicago skyline has some depth to it, so not everything is going to look like it's actual height.

Well, it's not really BIG, this is the angle from which it looks slim.

BTW: Sears Tower really DOMINATES the photo!

3 reasons

1.) Not finished
2.) Trump Tower is behind sears, meaning it is farther then other buildings
3.) That's the slim angle

just height, not width like the sears will still have when the spire is done

Spire is an average of 150ft wide whole way up. sears top section (top 20fl) is 150ft wide, so that give you an idea how wide it will be.

But because Sears top section is square, it could look up to ~212ft wide if you viewed it from an oblique angle...

That's right. I'm proud to be European. We've got a lot of history behind us, but we haven't got many skyscrapers

I love the beautiful old stones too!
