Taken Sep 27

I know some don't like pics without updates, but here's a few I took anyway and a few my 11 year old daughter took as well. It was one of her 11th birthday gifts going into the city, we love going to the city.....her mom (ex) doesn't take her at all.

Sorry if these are pointless.






taken by my daughter

Last beam laid before planned 2009 opening.

The newest addition to Chicago’s skyline – the Trump International Hotel and Tower – underwent its topping off ceremony this Wednesday, September 24th, ahead of its planned opening in 2009. In attendance were the Trump Organisation’s Donald Trump and family, and the architects of Skidmore, Owings and Merrill LLP (SOM), the company tasked with designing the structure. The 1,361 ft large-scale, mixed-use tower stands at 401 N. Wabash in Chicago, the site of the former Chicago Sun-Times offices, and at 92 stories is the fourth tallest building in Chicago.

Upon its completion in 2009, the new tower will be the tallest residential building in North America, incorporating 472 residential suites, a 225 room Trump International Hotel, 50,000 sq ft of retail space, 868 parking spaces, restaurant, spa, lounges and promenade. Based on the bank of the Chicago River, the tower is one of the first major riverfront projects in the central business district to take full advantage of its waterfront location, with an expansive promenade, which steps down for three levels where it meets the river. It is hoped this will help to establish a pedestrian connection between Michigan Avenue and State Street, by providing public assembly spaces and retail activity at the river’s edge.

The tower has been adapted to reflect its orientation along the riverfront, and by complementing its surroundings and adjacent buildings. It achieves this by relating to its neighbours through a series of setbacks, the first on its East side, adjacent to the cornice line of the Wrigley building, the second on its West side to complement Marina City and the residential tower. The third and final setback also sits on the Eastern side and relates to the height of the adjacent IBM building.

Richard F. Tomlinson II, the project manager, adds how this adaptability was central to the design, “Flexibility is key in any mixed-use business and residential environment. The right building would be able to accommodate an evolving market. The resulting tower meets this goal.”
