Well, the pictures are from the opposite side than all the other pictures we've seen in the last few weeks, so it's a definite possibility that they are simply further ahead on that side.

Awesome update!

That tower is going to make it's mark on the skyline in a very significant way.

I just wish Trump would design towers like that in New York.

You guys gotta be kidding - I love Trump World Tower in NYC. Can't say I'm a fan of the older Trump Tower on Fifth, though.

i can't believe it's not finished yet! Trump has just offended Toronto with his stumpy ugly, green tower. Chicago always seems to get the futuristic quality designs.

That was back when po-mo completely replaced modernism for a bit. I don't the feeling with the fifth avenue tower either.
