The Toronto skyline is one of my favorites.

rumours are that Trump has applied for a height decrease (of about 40 meters) due to slow sales... meanwhile Yorkville's Four Seasons flagship tower and the Ritz Carlton have sold like hotcakes.. Toronto's condo/real estate market is booming but Trump has had some real problems tapping into this... we'll see what happens as nothing is official yet.

Trump hasn't been selling because many don't believe that it will actually be built.

They started selling this tower in 2004, 3 years later the place is still a parking lot.

Unfortunately, with the Seasons and Ritz and SL moving forward with their towers, Trump is losing any first movers adventage that ever had. But sales should pick up again when they finally start building something.

This building is really ugly in my opinion and I wish it were not even being built. It does not fit in with Toronto's other buildings at all. Doesn't even complement them. It just looks awkward.

Now Ritz Carlton and Four Seasons and Shangri-La. Those are nice.

Classy looking building. However, I think I still like the more modern looking tower in Chicago.

Contrary to popular opinion on these boards and from real estate agents in TO, sales are just fine at Trump Toronto ($275-million last time I checked). Despite all the naysayers and non-believers, construction is planned to begin in September (I have the hoarding plan right in front of me). We'll see you there!

Has there been talk of a height decrease as ratoronto says or can we still expect it to be 324m?
