They probably still have work going on in them. The top Penthouse looks far from complete looking up 900ft.

Looked done enough from the outside


Are there any pictures or anything of the interiors? I've gone through half this thread, and there is barely anything.

I asked when I went into the Trump if I could take photos, and they told me no photography is allowed.

I'm sure a guest would be allowed to take photos. If you all want to send me for the night I'll get us some pictures.

Trump Toronto hotel investors file suit

Trump Toronto hotel investors file suit

Quote:
The Trump Toronto, the tallest residential building in Canada when it opened in January, is suffering from low occupancy, and residents are unable to get the financing promised to them, about two dozen buyers allege in their lawsuits against the Trump Organization and the tower’s developer, Talon International Development Corp. Donald Trump was not involved in selling the properties, said Alan Garten, counsel for the New York-based Trump Organization Inc. “These allegations are completely without merit,” he said in an email. “Trump was not involved in the sales process and Talon, the developer, made no representations to buyers regarding return on investment.”

Billionaire Donald Trump was featured on advertising material for selling the hotel suites, his photo and comments praising the building appeared in magazine advertorials that highlighted the investment potential of the suites. He sold rights for the hotel to use his name and trademark via Trump Marks LP, his company that owns the Trump brand. He attended the tower’s opening in April. Donald Trump declined to comment through his attorney.

Trump looks rather striking from certain angles:

Is it ever going to be finished? I still can't believe they haven't put glass in for those fake windows on the east side lower floors (parking garage). Please tell me they aren't going to leave it like that indefinitely.

They aren't going to. That's the finished look.

It's that big, grey mechanical box that ruins it for me. Why didn't they just continue to use the green glass all the way up, to make it look like part of the building. We need to hide those mechanical boxes and HVAC units much better, in Toronto.

Why have they stopped lighting up the corner of the building? Is it no longer working?

I saw them testing(?) it last night, it was lighting shooting up and down, similar to the CN Tower's shaft portion at night.

I'm torn on that LED lighting on regular buildings....half of me likes the colours, and half of me finds it tacky and a bit garish.
