Where abouts in Maywood? I can definitely see it from Metra/CTA tracks in Oak Park.

I can also spot it from a highrise in Batavia, IL. That's only on clear days, though.

not to start anything, but for some reason chicago's skyline impresses me more than nyc's. perhaps because it reminds me a lot of toronto's urban form.

I hate to disagree with my friend ZZ. However, Chicago is tops in my book. Chicago has a certain level of order to the urban display. NYC seems to be thrown together.

...on the other foot..

So the Sliver Boot is now on the final leg ! Quick work and nicely done chaps !
It's not a favourite here in cloister but we are enjoying the vertical creases in the cladding, the neatest folds we've seen in years.
Perhaps the odd looking hair vaguely associating it'self with Mr Trumps head would benefit from some neatness and short cut-backs !?!
We still prefer SWFC for it's 'massive' look and BD is clearly the greatest spire ever - however for the home of the skyscraper you cannot forget Babel !
Must go pray now, bless you all,
St. Tim

I think it's fitting that NYC's best known developer's greatest development will be his ONE Chicago project, on the banks of the Chicago River.

Finally Trump makes it to the big time.

I cannot believe it, but I had never noticed this beauty of a bridge right before the tower; what do you call those again? Levy-bridges, right?
It's great by itself already!

here is the scary thing, if you take the height of the trump tower now and put an exact replica on top of it, that is the height that the chicago spire will be....
maaad.
