I took these pictures on a trip to Chicago last weekend, July 05 2008, to be more accurate. These are taken from the boat that goes down the Chicago river. Hope you like them.

Great! The rendering nearly mimicks the view from CS! Perhaps it would be possible to make a virtual pano from the top of CS?

Can't wait to go to Chicago this weekend!!

Wow I wish that the floor numbers would be put there, like the Index. This appears to be very close to topping out, unless it is not considered topped out until the spire is installed???

IMHO, this Trump Tower fits in the skyline perfectly. Perfect height, perfect location. I can't wait for the small cylindrical section to start, and the spire.

I'll be in town on Saturday (2008-07-12) for a little group gathering, they'll be touring some parts of the city and then drinking beer afterwards.



I can't even imagine your excitement regarding your trip - I feel fortunate living here in northeast Wisconsin, only about 3.5 hours drive time from downtown Chicago. ENJOY!

Mike
