Trump seeks bottom buyer
By: Eddie Baeb September 22, 2008


...The New York developer has hired a broker to market the building's four-level retail space overlooking the Chicago River, set to open next summer with room for 20 shops and restaurants.

Mr. Trump won't disclose an asking price, but an offering memorandum obtained by Crain's suggests the space could fetch $115 million to $130 million.

...Meanwhile, Mr. Trump says talks are under way with seven potential tenants for some of the roughly 83,000-square-foot retail space, including a few "very fine" restaurants. He declines to name them.

Hydrogen - professional quality stuff as usual. I love the orange along Michigan ave, with a dark band of trees, and then the green and red of LSD.

The crane on top of Legacy seems to have a very long boom for a lufting (?) crane ( one that can rais and lower the boom).

I sometimes feel like an idiot for paying too much attention to NYC and Dubai, while missing some interesting projects over in Chicago.

Trump Tower: Ready to get spired

Donald Trump will be in Chicago Wednesday for the ceremonial "topping off" of his 92-story riverfront skyscraper, but for my money, the real drama will come next month when a helicopter lifts the tower's ornamental spire into place.
The action in the sky is set to occur on Saturday, October 25, and Sunday, October 26--weather permitting, of course.

Photos of the spire supplied by the building's architects and engineers, Skidmore, Owings & Merrill of Chicago, show tapering, three-legged steel sections waiting to be trucked to Chicago. Once connected atop the hotel-condo tower and clad in painted fiberglass, they will reach at least 200 feet above its roofline and bring its total height to more than 1,360 feet.

That should make the Trump International Hotel & Tower Chicago, as the building is formally known, the second-tallest building in America, about 90 feet shorter than Sears Tower, an office building. Always fond of associating himself with superlatives, Trump is billing his skyscraper as "the Tallest Residential Building in North America."

The New York developer and reality TV star initially did not want a spire atop the skyscraper, but relented in 2004 when Mayor Richard M. Daley insisted on the decorative feature in a closed-door meeting in Daley's 5th floor City Hall office. Said a Chicago Tribune headline: "Daley to Trump: 'You're spired!'"

Wednesday's "topping-off" ceremony, which is scheduled for 3 p.m. on the tower's 16th floor, is a public relations event that will mark the completion of the tower's concrete superstructure, an event which occurred last month. In addition to Trump, his grown children and fellow bold-face names--Donald Jr., Ivanka and Eric--are expected to attend. The spire's height, according to Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, is 227 feet, eight inches.

Located at 401 N. Wabash Ave., on the former site of the squat Chicago Sun-Times building, the tower is set to be completed next year.

Its chief designer, Adrian Smith, has left Skidmore and opened his own Chicago architectural firm. While at Skidmore, Smith also designed an even taller mixed-use skyscraper, the Burj Dubai, now under construction in the United Arab Emirates. Its height is expected to reach a mind-boggling 2,600 feet--a level that, for now at least, out-Trumps even Trump.

Brian Steele, a spokesman for the City of Chicago's Department of Transportation, said he could not specify street closures because the Trump Organization and its contractor, Bovis, have not yet applied for a permit for the spire installation.

Are the panoramas a single shot with a wide angle lens, or multiple shots stitched together? I see it was with a EOS 5D. What was the glass? Thanks.
