Looking down on the Trump Tower: What’s your take?


Here’s a view of Trump International Hotel & Tower that I bet you’ve never seen–unless you happen to be a helicopter pilot. It comes from Lawrence Okrent of Chicago’s Okrent Associates, a firm of urban planners, architects and graphic designers that provides aerial photography to the real estate industry.

Nevertheless, this aerial perspective nicely shows off the skyscraper’s taut, elegantly-detailed curtain wall. And it’s fun to peer down on Trump’s outdoor terraces and their tiny swaths of shrubbrery.

Oh yes–we also see the racetrack-like circuit for the skyscraper’s clunky-looking, window-washing contraption. Reminds me of an oil well–except, of course, it’s more than 1,000 feet above the sidewalks of Chicago.
