Actually both buildings have same architect which is why both buildings look somewhat similar.

Except burj has some radial symmetry while this has none . . . the only really striking resemblance I can see is in the cladding. This building is made to fit in with the flat-topped broad-shouldered Chicago buildings, while burj is designed to be the centerpiece of a giant development complex. Both do well in their respective categories, but neither one is really a favorite of mine.

I don't know the details of Donald Trump's new Seattle Trump Tower yet. He just announced on Seattle Times Newspaper today. He said he is looking for the site at downtown Seattle. Also he just hired an architect from NBBJ. He hasn't say anything about the height yet. This development will be luxury five stars hotel-condo project.

You rock Retrograde thanks for the awsome updates! Hmmm I think they are already starting to work on the mechanical levels. This section of the building only has twelve floors and in the pics above it clearly shows ten of the twelve floors already constructed and poured. I made a quick cheep photoshop floor count just to make sure.


Picture above is a cut section of a picture from Retrograde.

By the looks for it they have two more floors to work on before the next setback. It's a little hard to see because of the equipment.
