I've never imagine that this building will be so wonderful as it is right now, imagine when it's completely finish.

I don't like the cladding, it looks tacky and cheap. Otherwise great scraper.

The striped pattern and the gold emblems tend to make it look cheap (especially in the model, the renders are actually pretty good). Flashy Trump colors + poor proportioning = not good. If you want to see some good (or rather bad) examples, just look at any of the various 30 story buildings on SZR. Actually, thinking about it, it kind of reminds me of King Tut's head ornament.

Nah, i reckon it's totally stunning! I've been checking on this building for months and am so excited that it's been progressing so amazingly rapidly.
But each to their own view.
