I'd trade the CN tower for this any day.
Very robust yet beautiful.

I thought this building was moving pretty damn slow. But I was pretty damn wrong this building moving at the proper pace. Everytime I see it, it grows. All we need to do now is have trump build one in his home city, New york new york.

I would keep the CN Tower over another building like this. The CN Tower was considered an engineering marvel by the American Society of Civil Engineers. This is nothing different. Why would you take another box in Toronto.

Canada is a not a mediocre country. I see you live in Vancouver and your hometown is T.O. Can you do those in Vancouver a nice favour? Move back home.

trump only built this building in chicago cus they wouldn't let him build in NYC. I don't know it seem as if other new yorkers can't stand him. Something about have a school and a few parks shut down for one of his many projects. Lets just say Mr trump wasn't to nice to the poor in his youth.

Well he replaced the old Sun-times building with this tower, so I don't mind him developing here. From what I can tell, he hasn't had any instances of being less than reputable with Chicagoans.

No you miss understand me I'm saying trump would build a tall building in any city if that city lets him. Trump burned all his bridge in new york, He's on chicago good side right now. He likes see his name on tall building, And he didn't have that in chicago now he does. He wanted to build the tallest building in the world in new york. But they rejected it. So he decideed to go to chicago, and he change the height after 9/11 to what he's building now. I mean I luv this project and I respect trumps work, but he's kind of evil.

Gotta say that in my many years of "skyscraper geekness"... I've never seen a building that exactly matches its rendered promise. Astonishing.

Yeah Trump isn't one of the top 100 real estate developer in New York let alone the top 25. He only owns the names on the building but not the buildings themselve. He not even the majorite owner of Trump Towers. Plus Trump is one of the main reasons for NIMBY in NYC. And let no forget you only know who he is because of that TV show of his. Name one Trumps project that didn't go belly up before that show, I can't name any. Lets just say he owes more money then his worth, he might say otherwise.
