At least the 9/11 fear has dwindled down some in the last few years. I am very greatfull to see the USA and the world reaching for the skies once again. Though I must say I like this Trump Tower much more than the 610m proposed one 6 years back.

Anyone has the rendering of Trump's orginal plan when it was supposed to be Chicago's tallest? I asked same question a while ago. It is seen like nobody here has it?

Why? Higher costs? City-Restrictions?
It can't be the fear of terrorist attacks... Y should they build the spire much higher then?
