I'm still thinking that it is too heavy looking when viewing from the east/south. A setback further from the river might have been a good idea as well. This will take time for me to agree on its "awesome-ness".

I'm excited to see the helicopter deliver the spire soon!

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.
Those round tubes will be definitely fixed along the whole spire...I mean, it looks way better when is that skeleton hidden...I think everyone thinks that...Even Mr. Trump...

You can't even see waterview tower as part of the skyline, its stopped progressing at a very low level for sometime. I'm not sure what that tower is.

The building under construction with the green 'Walsh' signage is the Legacy at Millenium.

I'm so happy for Chicago in so many ways....maybe even the 2016 Olympics will be held there, then Chicago would have true alpha city status

I have always wondered what is with the wooden bridge and building that look really out of place.

Yea the bottom portion of the spire was to be put up with the tower crane anyway. So they mind as well start that now. But the top of the spire scheduled to be installed via helicopter will probably happen the 15th.
