Impressed.
Great staff? Yes... Great Building? Not really.

Typical new building policy the TT is pulling right now... when Trump has all the units sold and the tenants have celebrated an anniversary or two, that "special service" will fade away as did the grand interiors and equipment promised before construction....

as will the hype over what was heralded as grand design, but is simply a mediocre tower with a well-trained staff.

I'm guessing they'll be trying every weekend from here on out and hope the weather cooperates and they can get this building finished.
