Folks, on St. P's day, try to get more photos, as the river will be dyed a crisp color of shamrock green!

Almost in all towers (at least here in SSC)like Trump Tower, the counting includes spires too. I dont see the reason why not...

I know we all do count the spires but i would prefer and it´s just my opinion nothing else, we should put the height of the building to the toop floor first and the height counting antenna looking spires second something like: trump tower 350 m (415 m). It´s just my opinion nothing else.

Please don't come with that discussion again. We´ve all seen them too many times and they always end up wrong.

This thread is about Trump Tower.

I would say the John Hancock Building and the Sears Tower antennas make a much more powerful statement on the skyline than the wimpy spire on Trump or the PETRONAS Towers too.

But alas the council of Tall buildings controls the definitions of total height and I do not see them changing their rules anytime soon.

Complain to them all you want via e-mail but I would expect it to fall on deaf ears but that should not stop you. Give them hell IMO.

Ewww these furniture are very cheap and poor quality. I'm shocked that Donald Trump allowed that.

I think so too, it looks way too cheap IMO for a tower like this one.
