I'm not knowledgeable when it comes to construction but it makes sense to me that it would start rising a litte faster now since the floor sizes are a little smaller. I really hope this to be the case as I can't wait for this to pierce the sky.

Pardon my French but what the hell did they spill all over Trump? By the looks of it appears to be some sort of oil? Or maybe a sworm of Cicadas flew into the building

I guess it's time to change some windows. I'm not sure if concrete will clean off of glass easily.

Nice Pictures... A landmark in the making...

Really Nice Pictures guys!!!

I have to be honest. I wasn't very happy about this project early on. I thought Chicago deserved a more unique landmark for such a high tower.

I guess I wanted something that stood out more (much like the JHC does). Something that made more of a statement and broke some new ground.

As time goes on, I'm realizing that this building is going to really hold it's own and be an anchor for the area that it's in. It may even be enough to provide a new skyline view that becomes synonymous with Chicago... Much like the "skyline anchoring" effect that the JHC provides in the view from north LSD heading south towards River North... or the view of the Loop from the Day Ryan.. seeing the higher and higher peaks of the loop, anchored by the Sears Tower.

Maybe that view is coming in from the River... We'll have to wait and see (unless the renders are truly representative of the future reality).

Anyway... Definetly, getting excited about seeing this one get topped off.
