This rendering below is the 78 floor version (I believe) by SOM. As you can see, they thought Chicago would simply take anything (they save all of their fantastic designs for the overseas market it seems but thats a different story). That thing was ripped apart by everyone and sent SOM back to the drawing board.





I swear after it was said and done, this tower has gone through six or seven re-designs. The previous designs are floating around somewhere.

There you go.


Thanks for the updataion...you can take rest as you have really done a great thing after so much efforts..

the river front plaza/park at the foot of the building is still being constructed, along with the mezz and ground floor levels. I'd say at least a few more months of work left.

no, its not photoshopped. just to let you know. there's no observation deck at the trump tower. unless you bought a unit there. you wont be able to get shots from the top
