That is the low-rise white/grey tower right in front of the foutain.

Btw, I am not an employee though. Each time I visit Chicago, I use to go there and have a good drink and enjoy the awesome view! even more awesome now!

Wow, so very very cool from directly underneath.

I have to say though, the effect isn't pleasant from more than a couple blocks away. Still very cool, but not great.

This is the Aqua thread - those shots are of Aqua, and not taken from Trump Tower.

Not the look I thought this building was going to have. Why do people keep saying this a Beekman Place look the same they look nothing alike.

While they don't look exactly alike, I think it is fairly obvious how the two have a similar facade...

Aqua turned out way better considering both renderings. Beekman looked nicer on paper

What the ****? Have you seen the Beekman? Its cladding looks 10x better than the renderings.

Thank you Patrick for the provided information. I love the last picture taken from the fountain. There was this documentary once I saw in which Chicago was mentioned as an open museum of architecture, ( sure it is, but that can also be said about NYC or Madrid/Rome many other places off course), so, I understand there are too many pictures to be shared with us. I miss Chicago for sure and thank you to all of you for sharing the pictures with those like us. (will it be appropriate if I use them on my desktop?)

I still think this looks like a casino. Especially the base. Not a bad thing at all, just different.
