It looks just like his Chicago building. He could've tried a different design.

Don't know...he didn't design the building, but, he did tweek it in the last year. It is what it is, but, it does resemble the Chicago building, IMO, as well.

Wonderful. Trump is making a risk, but I think it will pay off.

Not bad just a normal design for Trump. Steady maybe can go further than creative.

He's a smart man...He knows what's coming. There are others snooping around and picking up property. Some are buying a thousand homes at a time and completely renovating them and/or building new ones in neighborhoods. This is the time, in New Orleans, to make your buck work for you. Everybody knows recovery is right around the corner (it's started in many areas, already). Things aren't rosy, but, if one looks at history in cities that have been devastated by natural disaster, recovery is pretty sweet....

I was in N.O. recently and N.O. NEEDS projects like this, if only as a vote of confidence as the govt. appears to be doing F.A.

I like it much better than the original design. Its much more modern and sophisticated.

It is good to see Trump helping to rebuild New Orleans. I think the tower looks good.

I hope one day Trump will build something in Sydney to this magnitude.
