Wow! Definitely my favorite angle. Imagine this shot when the tower's done.

Edit: Actually, pretty close to this: http://img316.imageshack.us/img316/8690/trump12tx.jpg

That picture shows just how beautiful all of Chicago's buildings are with a quality skyline, the blue skies and water compliment the setting even more. That water sure looks clean and pure.

Trump's Masterpiece

This tower's design is so modern and fresh! I can't wait to see it completed. I think that this building could almost be considered one of the most attractive designs in North America, and certainly in Chicago. Absolutely stunning. Trump has painted his masterpiece.

are you being serious? (sarcasm is hard to get through the internet)

in case you are serious, no, the water is not dyed blue, that's it's natural color on a day with good sunlight. the river is dyed a bright kelly green on st. patty's day, but the dye usually wears off after a day or so.

the chicago river water may look clean (ie. no chunks of floating garbage), but it's still quite chemically polluted, though it's getting better. the river was upgraded several years ago by the EPA from a "toxic" rating, to merely a "polluted" rating. there are now over 30 different species of fish living in the river, whereas 50 years ago there were none because it was essentially a toxic waste dumping channel.

now that the river is being looked to as the city's second waterfront and as a place for recreation rather than as an open sewer, the prospects for the continued improvement in the river's water quality have never looked better ever since john baptiste point du sable first settled chicago back in 1779.

This tower is looking very good, though I'm still most fond of the Sears Tower in Chicago, I believe that one will always be my favorite.

Really? I personally think the sears tower is ugly and outdated, past its prime.

Yes, to me, newer doesn't always mean better. Well, most of the time it does, but not in Chicago's case in my opinion. I think the Sears tower is far more iconic and unique, but that's only from my perspective.
