Fantastic pictures all! This is one of the most beautiful structures I've ever seen. It has designer park benches and trashcans for crying out loud. Epic Trump Tower.

This building would work well near the Burj Dubai, it's a similar type of style. Makes me think the Burj would suit Chicago very well as well.

USD315 plus tax. Not cheap, but definitely worth it. The spa and gymnasium on the 14th floor was fantastic, with the running machines overlooking the loop and the Chicago river.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't this supposed to be done within the next 1-2 weeks, in terms of construction (not everything internal)?
