I think this is the benchmark now, Chicago needs more supertalls and even more skyscrapers at this quality - its simply beautiful and elegant!

If I wouldn't know, I'd think it's a render... especially the top part!

There's something about that last photo that makes me think that the tower would look better if the top section above the set back was extended up a little bit.

It was supposed to be originally, the Trump was supposed to be the world's tallest building. But after 9/11 they scaled it back, fearing no one would want to live in something taller than the Sears tower. It's still magnificent though, the pictures don't do it justice up close. Believe me, it looks plenty tall in person from that view.
