A helicopter places a piece of the spire on top of Trump Tower in Chicago. The spire has a total of 13 steel sections. Five already have been installed. The helicopter is installing the final eight. When fully constructed, the spire will stretch the height of the hotel and condominium high-rise to 1,361 feet, 90 feet shorter than Sears Tower. The Trump skyscraper will be the second tallest building in Chicago and the nation.
