External elevator (skip) is about 2/3 way down as of this morning (6/1).

Plaza work from May 27th.

Skip seen attached to column in center.

WOW! Awesome pictures! One of best pictures of Chicago skyline! That give me different perceptive of Chicago that I never seen it before. I think Trump Tower has better view of Chicago skyline than the one from Sears Tower and John Hanock Tower. Trump Tower is kinda right in the middle of Chicago skyline and you can see whole skyline surrounding you.

Wow, Jan. Yeah, the place has some views. Good to finally see the inside of the mysterious rooftop mechanicals enclosure. And that elevator shot is classic.

Also, meh_cd, thanks for all of the Trump pics.

I really do like this tower. While the design seems deceptively simple, different perspectives reveal hidden depth.

And Jan, those pictures are amazing. The Trump is truly the best observation platform for the Chicago skyline.

Although, it does sadden me that the tower is kind of lost in the dense cluster of the loop, especially with its stunning but slightly generic cladding color. Oh well, still beautiful!

Trump, against the dark, foreboding backdrop...

Those views from Trump are amazing; its so interesting to get such an elevated perspective of the city from something other than Sears or the Hancock.

I was wondering why Trump does not make it the tallest in Chicago.

Just adding 10 meters more than it ill be th tallest.



Cheers!
