Chicago this week

While my sister and mother are going to a play,I'm heading for the Sears Tower in the early evening,and taking it in at dusk,Love the Sears,but have done it before a few times. Can't wait till a few more years when this Baby is finished. It's such a jump in height,if ya think about it,one of the closest rivals to the Burj right now,even though the Burj is still much higher.But what's so cool is that this is right here in the states..

Trump Towers Las Vegas. It's the main reason many people are scared of the new gold glass in the latest Spire renders.

Currently under construction:

The mystery of when the official foundation work will be begin is just like the mystery of how tall the Burj Dubai will be when it tops out! Very exciting!!

er... uh... yeah.

I know they have to do all this prep work.. but can we just fast forward in time please? I can't wait to see this go up!

does anyone have a definitive, official statement regarding the top of this tower? (meaning some kind of retaurant/bar/observation deck)
