Well, all signs are pointing to a 2nd Trump project

http://www.suntimes.com/news/sneed/2...need04.article

Ring. Ring . . .

March 4, 2007
BY MICHAEL SNEED
Sun-Times Columnist

Trump 'em: Real estate mogul Donald Trump knows how to grease a wheel.

• • Translation: Sneed hears one of the first congratulatory phone calls that new 42nd Ward Ald. Brendan Reilly received was from The Donald.

• • The upshot: The Donald's Chicago Trump Tower, which is on the footprint of the old Sun-Times building, is in Reilly's 42nd Ward.

• • Scoopsville? Hmmm. A top Sneed source says Trump is considering developing another building in the Ward.

• • The downshot: The man Reilly defeated, longtime incumbent Ald. Burt "I'm hurtin' for certain" Natarus, was reportedly ousted partly because of his coziness with developers.

Now why did Trump have to associate himself with some fake wrestling dudes (WWE). Two notches down on the respect ladder, Donald!

i think the first setback at level 29 is approx 116m or 380ft high. so it will be this height for a while before they start on condo levels.

heres view as of yesterday! you can see a yellow crane.
