The Elysian is the name. And it not so tall, should have 60 floors and around 200 meters I think... It is a very nice building though.

I took this time-lapse movie a couple of weeks ago. It shows the helicopter assembling the spire atop the Trump International Hotel and Tower in Chicago.

There are a couple of times when the helicopter disappears for a while. This is when it's refueling at Midway airport.

Be sure to click the "high quality" version.
