Plus, you can see the glass on the parking ramp too.
And there is a tour boat out.
o yea your right. did you take that pic? must have been a special occasion. fireworks are on the lakefront in the summer and on the spot you shot in winter. I live next to trump, thats a good shot you took.

I wonder if those have anything to do with the filming of batman? I have never heard of Chicago shooting off fireworks from there in the winter.

Looks like the lobby is almost fully furnished, telling by the lighting.

I have attempted to work out some progress/milestone dates on TT. The floor counts are based on renderings and I used a rate of 1 floor completed per every 6 days. I think this rate is on the conservative side so hopefully, if I am right, this building might even be done faster. I found it interesting that it looks like the third transfer floor will be complete in Dec. 2007, the same month that they plan to open the hotel. Maybe they wanted to finish the last transfer floor and then open the hotel as soon as possible?

There are 23 floors in current segment between transfer floors. 18 floors left until the next transfer floor. 108 days to complete the 18 left. Would be done on 10-13-07.

60 days to finish the third and final transfer floor, would be complete on Dec 12, 2007.


43 floors remaining in last segment between transfer floors, 258 days to complete. Would be finished on 8-26-2008.

Oh yeah, bring on the spire!
