I don't think so, he is too narrow. Trump International Hotel & Tower and Scotia Plaza are exactly

It is getting soooooooo pretty.. I wonder how it soon will look like if the antenna is lit at night....hopefully it will truly start to add some more sparkle into the nights of Toronto

In fact there is an LED system which runs all the way from the bottom at street level to the top of the spire - if you look to the right of the photo just above it is the whitish line on the corner. The light should be a beacon on the skyline at night, a modern lighthouse.

Nice looking tower! I didn't know that Toronto is also building another tall tower nearby. Do we have a thread for that tower here? Thanks!

Second tallest what?

This building looks absolutely puny compared to the initial renders. I wouldn't count the spire as a part of its height.

The body of this tower is nice. But I find the top and spire a bit tacky. To me it just dosent seem to go well. Like its out of place.

Most of Trump´s towers around the world have a little touch of tackiness in them. Have you seen the one in Panama City?

At least this one is kind of nice.

The one in Chicago is near perfect. But you're right, most of them are a bit tacky. I do like this one as well only the concrete structure next to the glass top/spire should be lower.

Beautiful tower, but it looks smaller than it is IMO
