Probably because both have tiers and similar cladding. BTW when will be considered finished? Isn't the interior ready yet?

Whew! Just got back from a 3 day road trip to Chicago. This tower is even better in person! Here are some pictures from this morning (5/18/09).

Very ugly tower. Doesn't look half as good compared to what Chinese, Russians, Britts and even Italians are building...

You are perfectly entitled to your opinion. We thank you for sharing it with us.

Personally I think your opinion is uneducated, prejudiced, fatuous, disingenuous, and contemptuous ... but that is only my opinion. Do I detect a note of jealousy in your post? Read the thread from the beginning ... you will find most people admire this building.

I agree with your opinion!

! This is one of the best looking towers in the world. It's modern, and has clean crisp lines!

It's a perfect fit for Chicago. I had the chance of spending 3 days in Chicago back in the summer of 03' and I thought the city was amazing! Definately one of my favorites in the U.S.!

How can anyone seriously say that this isn't beautiful!?!?!?!

Trump Tower is almost finished indeed; the spire is complete. The only left is the works around the basement...

The tower is beautiful and classy but the ceiling here looks really shoddy...

Well said!

I love the interior of Trump Tower! Only one thing I want to change... Ceiling lamps at the ballroom room. It look very outdated.
