It makes me a tad sad to know that Trump Tower is about to stop growing. It was such an interesting construction to watch!!!

yes, but its currently 322m. the roof will be 345m which is about as high as AON or JHC , then the circular plantroom pushes up further to 357m/1170ft and then the enormous spire adds further height to nearly 1400ft!
so still a bit to look forward to.

The tower is looking great. I live in Toronto and I have enjoyed watching this tower rise. Now I can also watch the local Trump Tower Toronto rise because the crane was installed on the weekend. One Trump tower is almost completed and another is just starting.
