We all know who is Donald Trump and we all know what he's doing. This is one of the tallest towers in his realty kingdom. Trump International Hotel and Tower in Chicago, work of SOM Architects, was built in 2009, 357m to the roof and 423m to the top of the spire. With 98 floors, Trump Tower Chicago is second tallest tower in Chicago after Willis (Sears) Tower.


"Designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merril, the Trump Tower resides in the space formerly occupied by the Chicago Sun-Times and sits on the North side of the Chicago River just west of the Wrigley Building.  In October 2004, the demolition of the former Chicago Sun-Times Building began and in March 2005 construction began. The demolition and construction were financed by a $650 million dollar loan from Deutsche Bank and a trio of hedge fund investors.

The design of the building incorporates three setbacks to help lend an aesthetically pleasing continuity to the Chicago skyline. Each of the setbacks is designed to reflect the nearby buildings: the first was designed to align with the Wrigley Building, the second with the Marina City Towers, and the third with the 330 North Wabash building.

The building contains 486 luxury residential condominiums. The condominiums range from studios all the way up to five-bedroom penthouse units. The building is also home to a luxury hotel condominium with 339 guest rooms. The 3rd through 12th floors house lobbies, retail space, and the parking garage, and on 14th floor one can find a health club and spa.  The 17th floor through the 27th floor contain hotel condominiums and executive lounges, and the 28th through 89th floors have residential condominiums, with the 86th through 89th being penthouses.

Each floor is separated by a concrete slab, and stainless steel, glass,and aluminum panels are attached to each floor. 50,000 short tons of reinforcing steel bars, called rebar, support the hotel."
