Not only is that vapor from the ventilation system, but also from the heating system. Water vapor is a major component of the exhaust produced by burning natural gas (methane). That's what you mainly see coming from the tops of the buildings in that kind of cold weather.

This tower is just epic, an excellent fit for Chicago. All these pictures are great, but I do have a question. Are there any pictures of what was on the site before Trump?

try to google "Chicago Sun Times Building"

you will find a very interesting building that many Chicagoans loved to hate...

Wow, that's an ugly turd of a building. Wasn't that in one scene of Ferris Bueller's Day Off? Either way, Trump > Chicago Sun Times x1,000,000.

No you don't! The only high rises Reykjavik needs is those apartments that I saw under construction in the bay when I was there a few years ago. Iceland doesn't need skyscrapers!

The trump tower is undoubtedly much more beautiful, modern and elegant than the previous building.
Good change of building.
