yeah, I thought you might be. I believe the old plan was planned for the tallest in Chicago.

Do you have old rendering of Trump's orginal plan that supposed to be Chicago's tallest? I heard that before but I never seen the rendering of it yet.

By the way, great pictures!

I dont know the heights but I know the floor of every setback.

First setback, floor 18
Second, floor 29
Third, floor 52
Fourth, 88. (very small setback)

Not sure if that helps you.
thanks, ok i got an elevation and worked out heights.
first setback/lev18-68m/223ft
2nd setback/lev29-122m/400ft
3rd setback/lev52-202m/663ft
4th setback/lev88-316m/1036ft
main roof-344m/1130ft
top of circular top-357m/1170ft
spire-415m/1362ft
current height- 6 floors above lev29setback, thus lev35 or 141m/462ft.
is this ok?

Well we will be experience a long wait once they reach the next setback, it shouldn't be as long as the last one considering the smaller floor area.
