wow nice place indeed.

on a side note I really need to emphasize that these awesome pics still do not do this building justice. this building is a true gem and needs to be seen in person.

I know exactly what you mean...for that reason I'm going to Chicago in 2010 to behold Trump Tower and Chicago Spire.
