Some of these shots are strikingly similar to Chicago.

This building is fantastic. It looks way better than the renderings. I get to see it in person this Tuesday. I'm stoked!

The world's 4th tallest deserves a little more frequent updates this near to completion. From SSC:

Terrible weather and work hampered my hopes of getting close to this awesome tower. This was all I got.

First night picture I think. Looks really great, what the trump tower should have been.

Both Trump and Greenland Plaza have their ups and downs. This one wouldn't have looked as good in Chicago as Trump looks now. And Trump would definitely not look good in Nanjing.

But that shot is pretty sick. And the spire looks pretty f'ing tight. They need to develop more around this tower so it truly pops out of the crowd and isn't just a stick in a field.

I used to hate the rendering of this building, but now it's blowing my mind. I love how transformeresque it is!! Totally blows Trump Tower out of the water...or river more fitting

When you look at this picture you can tell how huge this building is. You look at it from far away and you compare its height to other buildings around the world but you don't actually think about how huge this building is. I mean, look at the guy at the bottom of this picture! The last set of lights must be like 5 feet long! And please tell me there will be an observation deck inside this part of the tower because it's going to offer amazing views!

I have to say I really like this building. Definitely one of the best looking on the Top 10 WTB list.
