Chicago's looks best then followed by Toronto. The one for Vegas looks ugly short and boxy with the ugly name on top.

TTC reminds me of a glass and steel reworking of the Sears Tower, and TTT reminds me of the Chicago one with a more Toronto look, more brown and red boxiness, like the Scotia Plaza. TTLV looks boring, and if it weren't gold in color, it'd be like any other building anywhere.

Sorry, I don't like anyone. They could be great architecture projects but are just normal towers. Just high things.

Just by tower itself, I would say Chicago without a doubt. But I voted for Toronto because the building matches the surrounding and in building design, coherence with the surrounding is more difficult than just desiging a building.

Definitely Chicago. For me a matching building isn't always the best option. Adding something new can be good too.

i vote for chicago. the toronto tower is also nice, but i'm not entirely sold on that 1/4 onion dome top. the vegas one is so predictably "vegas" that it is a visual bore (despite its shimmering golden opulence). most importantly, the chicago tower is the only one of the 3 that is currently under construction, giving it a few extra points.



and this thread needs some better rendering of the chicago tower:

I have to agree - these are just towers which happen to be tall. Nothing special about them really. Trump has got the resources to build architectural spectacular buildings, and all he can come up with is this? The Chicago one is the best Trump project so far though.

Chicago's is soaring and modern. Toronto's is a po-mo bore. Las Vegas's is absolutely nothing special.

Chicago wins hands-down.

Trump Toronto is too much of a mish-mash of different architectural styles and it doesn't work for me, and I don't like how it's colour is going to be green. And Trump Las Vegas is nothing special, just like the other Vegas casino and hotels.

Please remember that The Donald isn't an architect, so he is not the one who building any of these skyscrapers, he just owns them.
