They are being renamed after corporate name, Willis Group. I think it is lame.

Looks like the curtain wall is 99% done now. They just need to finish the spire, take the elevator skip down and this one is done.

Oh, and finish the plaza at the bottom. Congrats to Trump and Chicago.

The other dude, you're so right about the Prudential building... The cladding is awful and the spire really looks like it doesnt belong there...

I wholeheartedly agree. The cladding looks awful today, especially at such a prime location.
