This building blends in very well. It's a large building but it doesn't look imposing.

I heard that this structure was one of the new episodes of Build It Bigger in Discovery Channel. Anyone got a link of the video?

By the way, sorry I forgot, but when will the last 'segment' of the tower be started? I'm quite anxious cos' with narrower floors to build the whole thing should go up even faster, shouldn't it?

Seems like the Trump website has been updated a little (and now features more Ivanka than Donald)
