I can't believe Trump was ranked 5th in the Emporis award voting. I've been a fan of this building but I didn't think it was that highly thought of.

It's not close to ground-breaking or anything, but it's certainly well thought out. Lots of great vantage points too.

Is the plaza open yet? I've been waiting to go exploring down there and see all the vacant storefronts.

I love the new walkway along the river and did that walkway on the opposite side ever get finished or are they still building it?

They have also closed off the Wrigley walkway off half way and are removing that nasty Modernist overhang that some moron decided to slap on the side of Wrigley.
