This tower looks amazing. Love everything about it especially the cladding and how its an unusual shape compared to the rest of the chicago skyline. Hopefully one day I will be able to visit maybe for my 21st when hopefully the building will be complete.

Quick question: How much longer will they be working on the Wrigley? It's been going on since last spring hasn't it?
Retrograde & Xrl Great updates I haven't checked up on the progress in a while and it's definetly gotten bigger. I can't wait to stand under this thing in a week. My favorite construction site bar-none.

Now I see the reason for the huge transfer beams. The round columns on the top are offset from the columns below. I think the round columns are on top of the transfer beams.

Megatower, I'll try and find those renderings for you.

I think these might be it. Notice
how the antenna is taller on the left one.

^No, that's just an earlier version of the same basic design. The WTB was pretty different than what you see above - wish I saved those renderings though.

Damn. I was counting on you to have them because I got rid of them too. Megatower, I'll continue.

I'll ask BVictor.

I don't believe that those renderings were ever released to the public. I only remember seeing 1 design that was 2,000', and it wasn't even by SOM. SOM's 2,000' plans were never released.

Who designed that version? The one youre talking about was that massive stub of a building, right?

It's been a while since I last visited Trump Tower... about 2 months exactly. I'm sure it looks much bigger since I last seen it. I'm hopping I can see it this weekend and take a few snap shots for everyone.
