Development

History

When planning for this building began in 2000, it was originally announced that it would be the future world's tallest building. After the terrorist acts of September 11, 2001, Trump had the plans scaled down hundreds of feet to avoid being a potential target for similar terrorist attacks. Year 2000 (MM) was a leap year starting on Saturday (link will display full 2000 Gregorian calendar). ...

The building's design by Skidmore, Owings and Merrill was first released in December, 2001. According to the Chicago Tribune, the company built nearly 50 models before they came up with a design they liked. However, the first design did not meet well with architects and the residents of Chicago. A subsequent revision in July, 2002 resulted in the current established design. In January, 2004, another revision changed floors 17 through 26 from offices into condominiums and hotel rooms. Bill Rancic, The Apprentice season one winner, manages the project.

Construction

The concrete subcontractor is implementing a comprehensive formwork for the construction of the building. The building will be the tallest formwork structure in the world. Concrete moulding is being used, because using a traditional ironwork structure would require a building footprint that would be too big for the property size, proportional to the height of the designed building. A liquid concrete pump allows each additional floor to be poured by pumping concrete up several hundred feet to the elevating construction site.
