Trump Tower has the best 360 degrees view in the city. Better than that of the Sears Tower, I think.

I think they originally planned to make it the tallest, but changed their mind after 9/11.

I'm so excited to see some greenery going into the plaza area. Hope there's plenty more to come and I bet it'll turn out great!

It could go there now, it only has the skip elevator to be removed. The plaza level doesn't count IMO as really a part of the skyscraper. The mods moved the Bank of America tower (NY) into the ROT section long ago, and that one really is just finishing now.
