Donalds Trump originally made plans for the Trump Tower to be the tallest in the world but plans changed after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. It has beat the John Hancock Center but not the Willis Tower (formerly known as Sears Tower). It has been acclaimed to be the 12th tallest building in the world. The building hosts residential quarters as long as a 5 star hotel.
Donald Trump made plans back in February of 2014 to install a 3,600 square foot Trump sign on the building. “Mayor Emanuel believes this is an architecturally tasteful building scarred by an architecturally tasteless sign”. I would have to agree, what do you think?
Architect Adrian D. Smith helped design the Trump tower as long as the Burj Khalifa and studied at University of Illinois, Chicago, Texas A&M University and College Station.
