we should be seeing different view of this tower when the chicago spire is built, it'd probaly be very small.

It is a splendid addition. And a very good location - right in the very centre of the city (unlike the other three biggies).

Taken today 8/02/08 from I-94. I just thought this was an interesting perspective. Trump now tall enough to see just about anywhere. I am really looking forward to seeing it when it's completed.

i found this tower really strange. it's design doesn't resemble a 400+ really, i think it is too generic, something someone would expect from a highrise, but not from a supertall. in my oppinion, it lacks of identity. i say this based only in th pictures, maybe being actually in chicago seeing it would be different, i dont know.
what i have to admit, it has a great view

very wide bottom of this tower makes it look shorter.

People in hotel rooms in the shadow of IBM building must be bored and depressed, not much to see (but thats modern layout of skyscrapers anyway)
