A Trump Project Gets Less Tacky

It seems counter-intuitive, but a Donald Trump building has actually gotten less tacky recently.

With the removal of the exterior crane, and significant progress being made on the ground- and river-level retail at the Trump International Hotel and Tower, the big "Trump" banners that used to cling to the concrete columns have come off.

All that remains on the support structure at 401 North Wabash is smooth, sleek, lickable* stainless steel.

Now we anxiously await word of what retail will occupy this space.

* Please don't lick the Trump Tower.  There's probably germs.
