Trump International Hotel & Tower
The Trump International Hotel and Tower is a skyscraper condo-hotel in downtown Chicago, Illinois.The building, called for businessman and later U.S. president Donald Trump, was designed by architect Adrian Smith of Skidmore, Owings and Merrill. Bovis Lend Lease constructed the 98-story structure, which reaches a height of 1,388 ft (423.2 m) including its spire, its roof topping out at 1,171 ft (357 m). It's next to the main branch of the Chicago River, with a view of the entrance to Lake Michigan past a series of bridges across the river. The building received publicity once the winner of the first season of The Apprentice reality television show, Bill Rancic, chose to handle the construction of the tower over handling a new Trump National Golf Course and resort in Los Angeles. Trump announced in 2001 that the skyscraper would become the tallest building in the world, but following the September 11 attacks that same year, the architects scaled back the building's plans, and its design underwent several revisions.
