The Aon Centre isn't that bad but I like those twin towers downtown.

Funny you should mention that. A Donald Trump Biography
was on A&E this aft, and they had footage of when it was
new, and it brought back memories of my travelling to New
York just after it was built and staring in awe up at all the
"goldness"!! LOL! I thought it was pretty darn swank.
Not quite so keen on it today, but it made a statement
when it was new. As did The Donald...
TB I think philip was talking about Trump World Tower (only because it's in the photo he posted unless TT is in the photo and I just can't see it), regardless I agree with you on Trump tower, it's the gold/bronze tint that does it for me.
