i don't get why everyone is falling over themselves over these two. yah they're tall, but they are both good looking at best, not great or amazing. that said chicago's is better because it is more interesting. toronto's looks like a waste - it's too short for its location and that thing on top is ridiculous.

Overall, I prefer Trump Tower Chicago. I like its design and height. But I think Trump Tower Toronto better interacts with the street.

Chicago wins for me, based on location, sleeker facade, and height.

I would put Toronto a close third (to Trump NO)

Chitown hands down.

No offense to Toronto's, I like it too. Chicago's just does it for me.

Trump Tower in Chicago is prettier, but a Trump Tower is being built in Panama City, Panama that will be the prettiest of all.

There is really no competition. Even a novice skyscraper enthusiast can determine that Chicago's tower is superior by a mile. It is streamlined, unique, iconic and sleek. Toronto's tower is quite underwhelming in my opinion.

Trump Tower Panama

Personally, my favorite one is the Toronto one.

I like Chicago's more. The colour of the building is more attractive to me, and I find the shade of green in Toronto's too reminiscent of the first CityPlace condos.

Toronto's Trump has got a character to it and I really like it.

to bad Trump Toronto is not in the greatest of all locations. It has three bank towers a 1000 footer, 900 footer and a 700 footer on three sides of it.

plus it not in a place of a lot of retail. If it were midtown (yorkville) it would likely be rising in the sky by now. However it seems very likely and almost certain it will get built.

They are both cool but I like Toronto a wee bit more for no real reason at all.

I think Chicago's Trump is more modern but Toronto's is more classy and will fit with that area nicely. Not to mention the bay-adelaide tower which will be rising the same time as trump. That corner will look SO different in a couple of years.
I like Toronto's more!

Both are ambitious and solid overall, but Chicago's is being built right now, and it's coming around pretty nicely.

Toronto's seem to blend in better with the other towers though.
