    Default The Trump Tower Chicago

    I think that the Grand Pier Tower will definitely be taller than the Tower Palace 3 Building, which is only 5 feet taller than TWT. *And from what I've heard the Freedom Tower also includes the 70-story building attached to it, and the other two 1000-footers are both separate entities.

    Oh, and for future reference, I'm TLOZ, not Zippy

    and possibly eight if you also include the 88-story Mega Tower Hotel project proposed for Wanchai.
    This version of the Hotel was not approved.

    I'd be very happy if Grand Pier was built, but I'm skeptical.

    A common mistake. We both have opposable thumbs.

    I suppose that if we are looking at the universe of potential 1000+ft buildings, you can throw in a possible Bank of America tower at 1 Bryant Park (I know they were saying 850 feet, but that number sounds stale to me), as well as a tall 70+ story building planned for the FSM (or should I say "S" ) site near the East River.

    This cannot be. These buildings have technically not been designed. There are no sets of plans of any of the WTC structures at "City Hall".

    Althoug it is definite they will be constructed in some form.

    They have to be put into the proposed category.

    This elevation, which is never shown, is insightful on the mass that this tower has.

    Yes, you're right. I know they will be constructed in some form or another, but I had forgotten that height changes may still be made. Just hopefully they won't get lowered

    That site says "The Trump Tower Chicago development, currently home to Chicago Sun-Times building, will be an 86-story, 1,125 foot tall mixed-use building offering approximately 1.3 million square feet of office space and 500 residential units. *The Trump Tower building would rank as the second tallest in the city behind the Sears Tower." They must have forgotten of the existance of the AON building which is about 10 feet taller. I'm not even sure if it will make third place. The John Hancock Center is 1,127 feet tall. That would make the Trump Tower the 4th tallest in the city. Am I right?

    Oh, whoops. I should've read the whole article first. It states that they are counting the spire, while the rest of the world isn't. So i guess its the "unofficial second tallest in Chicago". Spires are starting to piss me off *:angry:

    A picture of the current building there can be found at:

    Unfortunately they don't let you save or copy the picture so the link will have to do. The building that'll be knocked down is Chicago Sun Times. It isn't much and the Trump building will be much better.

    I'm surprised that the Chicago Sun Times building survived so long. It'll be a good riddance.

    Default Trump Tower Chicago FANTASTIC ADDITION.

    The New Trump Tower Chicago real estate development is a fantastic addition to one of the world's greatest city's. I have lived here for 23 years and am thrilled to hear of such plans. The 7 South Dearborn proposition looked like a pencil and had no place in my city. God bless Donald Trump.

    7SD was extremely slender, much like Pelli's skyneedle.
    I agree that the Trump Tower does a better job capturing the strength and majesty of Chicago.

    This building will be awesome.
