Trump towers: Chicago or Toronto?

Which do you prefer?
This is not about "which city is better"... in fact, both these projects are so vastly different (different site setups, different styles of architecture) that I don't think being patriotic to your city has anything to do with this.

Just... which project interests you more, be it better looking in your opinion, or more creative, or whatever your reasons are. This is all about opinion.

Please do not post more photos of the buildings in attempts to sway opinions. This is not what this thread is for, and people can go elsewhere in SSC to find photos of the buildings in their own time. I'm just interested in hearing opinions in this thread.

Go!

well...

by looking at the mages i would personly say that the one in chicago looks better due to it more interesting shape and design! the one in toronto i think looks slightly more boring.

anyway...i dnt want o sound silly but is there a reason why there are so many trump towers in north america???

I like Chicago's a good deal more. Trump Chicago may actually be the only Trump project I really can stomach (though I think the Trump Toronto may be his 2nd best).

Toronto, a biased answer but hey, it's my opinion. Chicago is really nice though, but I don't like the top.

Trump World Tower (NY) is a very sleek building though.

Thanks everyone for handling this in a mature manner and not turning this thread into "bashing/city vs. city or tower vs. tower" land

It's cool to see people's opinions on this. These projects are both so different!

the tower in Chicago is just catches the eye more (in my opinion). It kinda remonds me of the Sears tower, don't know why, it just does...

I think Toronto's blends in more with it's surroundings and I like the facade difference. I think Trump Chicago has a much better location though, seeing it from the river it looks gorgeous. Tough one, I like the location and height of Chicago but the design and "matchness" of Toronto. I'll say Toronto.

I don't like the upper part of Toronto (building). And I don't like the lowerpart of the Chicago (building).
