I am fairly certain that there were originally supposed to be 92 floors but that number was increased to 96 because the mezzanine levels were added to the official floor count. I am also grateful for what Trump is doing here in Chicago. I sure hope he builds an even taller building after this one is finished. I can only hope that Trump will trump himself.

You've just hit the floor count on the head. The mezzaning levels are now being counted which increased the floor count, but the actual building height remained unchanged.

This building is seriously huge. I have followed this thread for a while and realise that there is a HELL of a lot still to go, but i have just been in Chicago and was utterly amazed by the size of what is there already, it's gonna be one hell of a building!

Great pictures! I noticed something wrong with that building... Parking garage ramp... It is not well built... I can see one ramp is little spooked than the rest of ramps.

well i like to try to work heights out. ive used the diagram that someone used to post regualry, but it has dif floor count. I count 14-15 floors now abovelev17 setback, but in the diagram there is only 12?
so not sure if architects have increased height of section from lev17-27?
anyway its now about 30 levels or 125m/400ft.
