Looks like the first 8 floors of parking are ready and the ramp is almost all lit up......

must be funny when you work in a office-room of the neighbourbuilding every day and you can see how the trump tower slowly rises past at you

Great thread. I love keeping up to date with the Trump Tower Chicago. I know it might not be the most revolutionary tower in construction, but I think its great and shall be a great addition to the Chicago skyline.

..and yeah it must be weird to consider that specific view from the IBM plaza shall soon be no more.

Great picture though. - and that's a lot of 'greats'

It's funny how this tower's facade looks so much shinier than the facade of Burj Dubai, even though the Burj is in the desert.

ive compiled a more detailed diagram .
The webiste mentions TT has 92 stories.But it doesnt include 2nd floor mezzanine and lev13B plant. also doesnt include top 2 levels in circular crown.
thus 96 in total.
The condo floors are 3.1m tall. with penthouses 4.5m.
current height is approx lev39 or 160m whch is same height as nearby River plaza. I threw in chicago other talls for comparisons.

Awesome... just edges out the Aon, and John Hancock, I always got the impression it would be slightly less than those two.
