4th?

So, if I'm not mistaken here has Trump now moved up to Chicago's 4th tallest?

I recently saw that "Build it Bigger" episode about this project. Man, Trump reallly loves to make his towers flashy.

It's a very interesting project though. When I heard the cost of a place in the tower I almost had a heart attack.

That is pretty hard to believe, but I guess you are right! Very scary.

Great pictures, I love the last one!

Just out of curiosity though... do you have something against the John Hancock tower?
