I miss you isaidso been thinking of you a lot lately, but hardly time to send you emails. I am knackered at work really, but you are still with me wherever I go.

what is happened ? !!! The render was great, the reality is very disappointing... Less high, less good clading ... It seems this building is not at the good scale. Very strange and disturbing ...

I agree..
But comparing to places like Chicago almost paralysed, the recession has been merciful on Toronto.

Looks like the render to me, just not as tall.

I quite like it. It fits in to the core well, complimenting it rather than trying to take it over, which is good. I'd hate it if the tallest or grandest looking scraper in T.O. had the trump name.

Right now, it's greens, matched with First Canadian Places gleaming white and Scotia's deep red is an awesome trifecta.

This tower looks quite small compared to Scotia Bank Tower. Why they downsize it from 325m?? I think the original height fits the skyline better.

trump didn't sell as well as they hoped to, and his creditors probably agreed to start construction if he removed a bunch of unsold units.

Renders often present their project from a perspective that makes it appear even bigger - somethimes even overscaled or distorted. On this render one should surely get the impression of a new city's tallest, although the height figures don't match.
I'd prefered this one to be supertall, but I like TTT, although looking tiny compared to the massive First Canadian Plaza and Bank of Nova Sotia. It's good to have this different design with spire among the boxes around.

So true! It's hard to find other booming sklines in North America right now - NYC plus maybe Calgary, Oklahoma City and Panama City in the very South.
