Chicago has another Super-Tall!

Congratulations to Chicago! Someone just e-mailed me saying the Trump has topped out at 1,361 today.

This is such a cool tower. Woulda been awesome if it had been finished for The Dark Knight. Great tower, great accomplishment, great city. It all fits.

All I'm waiting to see is a shot of Chicago's big 4, because none of those pic's have Big John in them. A panoramic shot with all four would be my next wallpaper.

Cji649: Those shots are eerily breathtaking. Great job! I think Chicago now has the best skyline in the Western Hemisphere, qualitatively not quantitatively. Although the city now has the #1 and #2 tallest buildings in the Hemisphere. Congratulations Chicago!

P.S.: Did you take those shots from Hancock Tower?

Those skyline pictures are breathtaking, who knew a little spire could go such a long way, it completely transforms the skyline! Chicago is lucky, Trump fits in very well with Hancock and Sears. I’m not sure there is anywhere else in the world where three different supertalls fit in with each other so well.

Aon is sort of hiding, but I like how 300 N LaSalle looks in this photo

Hey thanks spyguy! Just what i needed. Now I see how well they work in relation to one another. And it is nice because all of them are well spaced. Two in the center, and two on the outermost edges. Very cool.
