The Trump Tower is truly beautiful, but what an ugly-ass radio-mast/spire-thing construction on top I'm hugely disappointed by that...

[Edit] - And a great set of photos there, BVictor1 - thanks Sterling work!

It isn't supposed to look like that, wait until it's finished.

Hi all,
And here's a new video of the spire installation, taken by Ken Derry, the crane operator. He took this from top of the under-construction Aqua tower.

It looked brutal for those guys bolting the pieces together--totally exposed to the weather, holding onto cold steel for the entire day, and it was very frigid that day!

Are you born in Chicago, or you moved to Chicago?

It's called Elysee Tower or something. There is a thread for it in the Skyscraper cession I believe.
