I am really excited about this building. The Don is a fantastic developer (or his team are anyway).

Will the speed of construction delay the completion date?

I like the exposed garage ramp spiral - It has a Guggengeim Museum quality that's quite stunning.

I love this building but doubt if the riverbank could hold a skyscraper of this height and weight.

If there was a doubt that the foudation could hold the tower next to a river they wouldnt build it. The piling and base of the structure will be more than capable of supporting the tower. Being located next to the river makes little difference.

you are right DocShergar, but even if there was a problem with the foundation being close to the lake. Trump would still want it there. for example, if there was something wrong with the soil. Trump would higher engineer's to figure a way to make sure the foundation will hold this tower.

Um yeah, its called a caisson foundation. The building is anquored to the bedrock below by steel rebar and concrete filling drilled shafts into the ground below. The river bank is irrelevant, in fact Trump has basement levels below the level of the water.

excuse me but im not a pro .Surely I undestand the foundation is much deeper than the water channel, but there's always problem of premise sinking with high rises these days. Plus, will the high humidity aroused by the groundwater on one side be unpredictable to the effect on the foundation of the bldg? Will being located along the waterbed make the pressure from one side of the foundation uneven comparing to from the other 3 sides?

this is truly a great construction side! I like it that they put the facade on it so fast (only 4 storeys difference to current highest floor)

Here in Rotterdam they are currently building a nearly 170m high building IN THE RIVER! So why would building NEAR a river be any risk? It's all about the foundation.

Great tower by the way, that glass is
