The bottom floors are a hotel, and the rest are condos.

The last one is cool.

From this angle Trump Tower doesn't have much effect on the skyline.

The spire pretty small, thin and almost useless. I like the building been waiting for it to be finish for years. But if your going to put a spire on a building, make it massive like the one on BOA tower. I just kidding it doesn'tt need a spire that big lol.

Actually from that angle, all supertals except Sears don't have much effect on the skyline.

AoN, Big John, Trump, 2 Prudential, look small, and you can't even see clear AT&T.

Wow! That last pic is amazing. The Legacy at Millenium Park tower is making a great impact.
