Anyone know what is going on with the Trump man? I got a letter saying that my closing is pushed back 3 months. I read some WSJ article about loan problems.

Trump files suit



Donald Trump filed suit against the lenders on his unfinished Chicago skyscraper, plunging the project into legal turmoil and highlighting the credit crunch's pervasive effects on real estate.

Mr. Trump is suing to extend a $640 million senior construction loan on the 92-story Trump International Hotel & Tower from a group of lenders led by Deutsche Bank AG and including a unit of Merrill Lynch & Co., Union Labor Life Insurance Co., iStar Financial Inc., a publicly traded real-estate investment trust, and Highland Funds, a unit of Highland Capital Management LP.

i find it ridiculous tha sears antennas arent included in height, when they are so dominant and most importantly essential part of its overall design.
yes we know they are communications use and not architectural but there are some cases where they should be included in height. also ESB and JHC!
rant over
great snaps guys. keep em comin

The more I think about it your right. The antennas are complex and massive, goes with the whole industrial theme, at least in chicago. This goes for both ST and JH I always love the way they light the structures at night and how it constantly changes during holidays and special occasions. It truly is a functional aesthetic.
