Talb,

But since he stands for the financial part he should be able to hire architects who can draw something more spectacular than this. It's not that Trump has to save money for his retirement or something. He's got the money.

Just like the last time there was a poll between TTC and TTT, TTC is winning by a 2:1 margin.

true, but even more interesting is how not a soul has voted for the vegas one yet. it truly is a forgetable design.

The Donald tells the architect the sort of building he wants and has a lot of input in the design. But I agree the architects aren't very good. Trump should be comissioning better architects like SOM which he did for Chicago and not Costas Kondylis who do alot of his stuff in NY

I like Toronto's Trump Tower better, it looks more like an elegant hotel rather than the chicago one which looks like a big, unattractive office building.

But seriously, Trump did not have any input in the design of Trump Toronto. The design by Zeidler was originally planned for 333 Bay street and the main tenant was first Ritz-Carlton and then they pulled out and Trump took over the tower.

I didn't realise The Donald had so many skyscrapers both built & on the boil. Here's an SSP Diagram of all building with the world 'trump' in it - probably not all are his?
http://skyscraperpage.com/diagrams/?12002893

Some of his other current projects:
Trump Tower Tampa - UC


Trump Royale & Trump Palace - UC


Of the three biggest ones featured in this thread - I like Chicago best.

I would have to go with the Chicago tower. The Vegas tower looks very similiar to the Mandalay tower on the south side of the Vegas Strip.

I like them both, but I will have to wait for both of them to be completed. By looking at the Chi rendering I am lead to believe that the glass will not be as shiny and reflective as in the renderings. The Toronto one will add some green glass to the skyline, but like the Chicago one, it too could turn out not so picture perfect. The Chicago one looks like a very well done 21st century office tower while I think the Toronto one looks more asian with the spire, but the boxiness fits in very well with the surroundings.
