I love Chicago. Trump Tower is about at supertall height, yet it doesn't dominate its impressive neighbors. That's what I call a strong skyline.

I agree...only in a few other cities would a supertall "blend in" as well as in Chicago.

The cladding was really done faster than what I imagined, BTW.

I was trying out some things yesterday and ended up making a time-lapse video of construction of Trump Tower Chicago.

Aside from the cranes swinging around, you can see a couple of the climbing platforms being moved up and some of the windows going in. Also, around :30 into the video you can see the platform for the next floor being raised.

Here's a YouTube version for those of you who are into that sort of thing, but with all of YouTube's compression it looks kind of crappy.

High quality version here:

Chicago doesn't mess around with its cladding. Anyone know if there is a reason for this?
In most other cities the cladding wouldn't be even close to how far along it is in Chicago.

Clad the building to keep the elements out and the carpenters can come in to install the drywall and other materials.

You do it sequential so that floors can be occupied.

Good catch, must be from the photo stitching SW used. Looking at the cladding that is a recent photo, I did a quick double check and the Hancock's antenna are still in place.

May 14th - from Ashland and Lake. ( Hancock on far left, Trump & 300 N LaSalle R of center, Standard Oil ( Aeon ) on right.

This photo has a lot of green! I love it wich those giants behind the trees

Look there, friend Sancho Panza, where thirty or more monstrous giants rise up, all of whom I mean to engage in battle and slay, and with whose spoils we shall begin to make our fortunes. For this is righteous warfare, and it is God's good service to sweep so evil a breed from off the face of the earth."

"What giants?" said Sancho Panza.


The Trump's cranes seems a couple of weather vane
