Wow, this tower is really ugly. It's so uninspired and 80's looking. What a shame!! Specially in that location. Something so much nicer could have been built there.
I seriously can't stand Trump's designs

i must counter, in my observation, this is a 1930's tower updated for current teck. Noir Roir. Look at those dusk pics..... how cool... what a feel. What a tower.

Height aside; "TRUMP!!" aside, it is kind of ordinary in all honesty.

However it is very well executed so on quality alone, it does belong in Chicago....think of it as a Lexus trying to be a BMW.

To be fair, I don't like any of Trump's buildings. So I'm not singling out Chicago or anything. Your city has amazing towers.
Spire is going to be amazing and i'm very jealous of it!

I'm worried about how this building is going to look at night based on the great pic posted by Mr Downtown below. It seems like the whole world, at night at least, will be able to see the hundreds of cars parked in the garage, given the transparency of the glass
