Fantastic updates. I cannot wait for this building to start noticeably poke out of the skyline.

Is it me, or does the snow make the glass shimmer more?

i love how trump always has to make sure people know which buildings are his, even when they are under construction.

Nice tower though... quite classy and substantial looking like an office tower would be expected to.

Well, snow does reflect the sunlight, so basically the tower is geting a double does of sun.

That's because it's been freezing in Chicago for the last 3.5 weeks. We had an uncharacteristically cold spell come through that just wouldn't abate. Look for temperatures--and Trump--to rise in the coming weeks.

With the snow its so much brighter you can see good at night.

And the towers about to slow down when it hits another Mech floor.

Great Pictures Retrograde! The Cladding really flew up during this month but, the building still remains at floor 24. Trump Tower has been at floor 24 for the last three weeks or so. I think it may be too cold over here in Chicago for any concrete pouring; that may be the reason why the building isn't getting any taller. Still the building is showing great progress. Dispite the hellish traffic on Michigan Ave. on my way to work I still love passing by it every morning.
