Wow, I had no idea it is that tall already. That will be a beauty. What a great idea to add the cladding in the same time as building it. Looks much, much better this way.

Culwulla, in every pic I've seen taken from Chicago, the river looks like that. I guess it's still only a reflection of the sky.

Lovely tower. Is it almost finished.
Chicago is really taking back its place as one of the most interesting highrise-cities.

I believe it is about halfway finished, and who did we lose that distinction to?

The new Batman movie is fliming outside my place today and I caught some cool shots of helicopters flowing low next to Trump tower. (please excuse the dirty lense and dark settings. I had to grab the camera pretty quick)

Just out of interest, for those who follow the progress in Chicago, how long does it take for them to complete one storey? It must take a while for the concrete to set, does that time vary noticeably in relation to temperature?

I must admit, it was pretty cool to witness. Just when I thought of taking a short video, they stop filming!

Sweet!

Nice pictures. Nothing quite like some low flying Huey Helos to make Trump Tower look even more interesting. (I didn't think that was possible!)

Yes...I passed through the River Plaza around 5:30- 6:00 PM when they were filming those scenes. I also saw lots of military vehicles around the IBM building.Pretty amazing...!!

Cool pictures! It looks like Donald Trump wants to protect his beautiful tower and want to hunt terrorists down and have them fired!

you've got to be kidding!! Batman Returns was the best one yet, by far. I cant wait for the next one.

And it looks like Trump Tower will make an appearance in the film.
