Well for one thing, the hotel, which occupies the lower floors of the building, will open in December. They should be working on the third segment of the buiding by then but not close to topping out yet.

Chicago says thank you! These stone towers can be found on the ends of bridges along the Chicago river. Overall, there is some really nice stone infrastructure along the river. Here are a few more examples of the stone towers:

Well, why not? And if the hotel opens before this beauty even topps out, it needs to be cladded first. And it looks much better this way. Now there's something else to watch in those progress photos than the hight. I love the cladding of this tower. So shiny and good-looking.

Yup..Trump hotel grand-opening was initially targeted for Dec. 2007 but that could change if the project is running behind schedule. I guess the construction progress is ahead of schedule but don't count on me.

Awesome! I wonder what Donald Trump is thinking of his tower... I am sure he is loving it as well as we do.
