Unfortunatelly, Trump Tower is mostly hidden at this classic viewpoint. Even the spire isn't fully visible, only the top is above BMO, in the midst of all the antennae. I wonder if this is 282m... doesn't look much taller than Scotia Tower (275m) IMO. I wonder why some sources list TTT at 277m / 59 or 57 floors (wikipedia, SSP).

Here some recent sunset pics... how the new hotels/mixed-use towers (Shangri La, TTT, Ritz-Carlton) have improved the Toronto skyline!

The spire is a bit too tall for my tastes. The proportions just look a little off.

Gotta be second biggest somehow

Wait until the cladding is finished up, I have a feeling that may changes things a bit.

If you are talking about the ones to the right, that would be the Toronto Dominion Towers (TD).

Nice, from where is that picture taken? From there the top of the Trump tower looks to be the top of the tower in front of it.

It looks like it's from the taller of the Residences of College Park.
