Awesome tower, indeed
but in a hundred years time it will be old... Can you imagine Chicago of 2108 ??

That's ironic, considering your avatar.

I am curious how the constructor install the spire and connected it together? That picture of spire looks very complicated for constructors to put it together.

The spire will be the least complicated part to construct on this building.

TT ready for the very top! Apparently this Chicago spire will go up quickly now. Thanks for sharing these pics.

I wonder if white round tubes will be fixed along the whole spire (I guess so from the renders), or if parts will be left open as a steel skeleton.

That spire would look better if it had a little "twist" to it.
