A proposed spire would increase the height by 102m, to a total of 618 meters. But since Chicago only has a well in place of world's tallest residential tower, there is no need for it.

its not about the height some towers look good with a spire i think it would look better without a spire it doesnt compliment the shape of the building provided it has more of an rectangular shape

Hi all.

Great updates Imre.

This is one of my fave projects - nice to see it moving along.

One thing I notice is the glaring lack of temporary external construction hoists for the workers.

Are they using internal hoists - or do the workers have to climb near 20 levels by stairs !?

Good spot, the core is fairly large so i'd say it's possible that they are internal

I've just noticed the same thing driving by when I saw loads of workers going up and down the outside stairs. Still manageable since it's only less than 10 levels above the podium, but I reckon it will come soon for sure. Alternatively Trident may start to hire Ironman Marathon Competitors as construction workers...

The core jumped up tonight, reveiling the 18th completed level, while the floorplate is as up as the 14th.

Any word on why 'Grocon' signage has been removed from Jumpform core box?
Was this planned or perhaps just removed by the weather?

Level 19 on the core completed, the formwork jumped up to that height (top of 21st), but the 20 and 21 levels have yet to be build.

Nah, since you are referring to the gap where the stairs wind up, beneath is just one of the formwork panel. Plus, where the core is now used to be just air a few days back
