Seeing Trump Tower on a recent trip to Chicago, I got the itch to do a story on it.

Trouble is, the story kept growing and growing on me. There are eight large photos in the story — lots of detail and my perspective on why it’s great.

This is definitely a casual read with some fun stuff in it.

No politics! Ha!

Hope you like it.

This was great...I love all Trump Buildings, they are statues actually in my opinion...inside is nothing but pure elegance from the lobby, the restaurants, the bars, the shops, and the rooms...

Can you imagine what he could do to some of the Washington D.C. structures like he did with The Old Post Office???

Class in everything he touches and does, and he is showing us how he does it, he's a great teacher if we take the time to learn...

Thanks for this, it made my day...

Great story and pictures.

Did some projects on Chicago in the 1980s and my daughter attended Moody Bible Institute, graduating in 2003.

Loved visiting there.

Really enjoyed this article—thanks!!

Thanks for all of that work - very interesting. I liked the image of the tower and the 1900’s photo. Amazing how things have changed over time!

A+ for research. A+ for presentation. A for spelling and grammar. A+ overall interest. Bravissimo. Very interesting. Chicago is a wonderful town with amazing buildings that motivate architects and inspire patriots. Thankfully, the 2009 Trump Tower is motivating, inspiring and attractive.

I learned from your research that the foundation of the Trump Tower is a work of genius. Amazing.

Took one of the boat tours through Chicago when the Trump Tower was going up and, to say the least, the Chicago powers that be, hated it going up. Hated it so much, they had a building erected next to it, to take away the Trump Tower view of Lake Michigan, trying to reduce the value of the Trump property.

Love it!!

Thanks for the leg work, great pics and info.

I hope to stay at the Trump Tower Chicago, one day.

I’ve stayed at Trump International Hotel, NYC and it is a dream come true.

Thoroughly enjoyed your story!! Made me realize I haven’t been to Chicago in so long! Too long. When I lived there in the mid 70s, I worked a block up Michigan from the Hancock bldg which was originally built by some DC friends (who thereupon lost their shirts!) Guess I need to get back to see this magnificent Trump Tower. As I recall, some co-workers and friends and I marched in the St. Patrick’s Day parade there that goes right past where the Trump Tower is now located. (well, we “marched” as stragglers)

And like it, we do, PP!

The sun is certainly shining brightly this day in Texas. Happy days just around the corner and half-a-block away?

Simply must take a nap today, and soon. SO wired up last night sleep was impossible.
