Worth every penny for sure.

But is it... finished? It looks more like scaffolding than an actual spire if you ask me...

Rest assured, they still need to clad the remaining sections. It will be one solid "spire" in 3 sections when it's complete.

Wow! Trump Tower looks beautiful! Glad the spire finally installed! Chicago looks much bigger with Trump Tower now!

And the spire is not even done yet... they still need to put its "Skin" on. That will thicken it a bit and make it more finished looking... Great work!!!

The spire looks nice, I think it suits the tower well.

It's going to be thicker. They have yet to put a layer of metal or whatever material over the spindly girder they have now. At least i think so.
