It was originally planned to surpass the Willis as the tallest in the nation. But Chicago's mayor was against this plan.

The plans were scaled down in response to the 9/11 attacks on the WTC.

Yes, to 327m (1,073ft), then it has been increased to 415m / 1362ft. After CTBUH changed the criterias the height increased again to 423m/ 1,389ft.

Took these way back when they were testing the lights - the effect hasn't changed though.

When is any of the retail in the base of this going to open up? I'm just itching for that stretch of river walk to get activated.

Trump Tower spire to light up Wednesday night for the first time


If all goes as planned, the spire atop Chicago’s Trump International Hotel & Tower will finally light up Wednesday night, joining the city’s other skyline giants in a blaze of cloud-scraping color.

Shortly after sunset at 8:29 p.m., newly-installed, energy-efficient LED lights will illuminate the spire atop the riverfront hotel and condominium tower, which is Chicago’s second-tallest building after the Willis Tower. They will color the 227-foot-tall spire in red, white and blue, honoring Independence Day. The color scheme will continue through July 11.

As at the Willis Tower and the John Hancock Center, other colors will be used throughout
...



Here's more about the Trump spire lighting plans from an earlier post.
