That value engineered arm for the window washer just ruins this entire tower at many angles.

This building is fabulous! I mentioned this before, but it goes well with the surrounding skyscrapers and Trump knows that everything in Real Estate is location, location location. I am extremely satisfied with the end result. Congratulations to everybody from Chicago. Your city has yet another stunning landmark.

You should probably mention this to Chicago architects Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, given that they designed both the Trump Tower and the world's tallest building in Dubai.

the burj isnt what I was talking about seeing that it is an underground parking lot, you seem to have missed the part where I said above grade.

The Trump turned out to be a fine building. Chicago now has yet another impressive trophy.

SOM also did the Sears tower and the John Handcock in Chicago and the Freedom Tower in NYC...Jin Mao Tower...

SOM is where it is at when it comes to supertalls.

Probably one of the best in the world.
