I like this tower, but it simply doesn't fit in this location.
looks like a tiny guy is waiting for the bus and two huge bullies looking for a easy fight standing behind him.

What??? Hello people in Scotia plaza who can "look down" on me...
My Real Estate agent told me this building is taller than that Scotia tower ... Dam!
(see picture from post #915)
The person who paid for the penthouse doesn't actually sit out on the balcony - he has someone who does it for him!

Once the grand opening happens this Saturday and Trump lights up the Roof top lights up, it will be a great addition to the Toronto Skyline....

What a great day it will be for Toronto when the benevolent Donald Trump graces us all with his presence.

Odds of it being done this Saturday look slim.. Two whole sides of the top are yet to be clad. The lighting up the corner isn't done. The logo isn't up there. Balcony isn't done..

If he announces it "complete" it will only be internally, and definitely not the sky lobby or the penthouse...

Nice tower, but its funny how a 282 m tower doesn't really make an impact on the skyline. I mean could be the centerpiece for almost any city... anyway congrats T.O. for this new building.

It's true. There aren't too many cities in the world where you build a 282 m building and it gets lost in the skyline. Makes you realize how big that CBD is.

for me it is a 230m Building, but it would still stand out an almost any city.

Good tower, could've been more fat but a great addition to the skyline.

Note that some of the scaffolding, especially near the top, has yet to be removed:

I was mis-informed. The Grand Opening is this Saturday.

April 14th

I think it's end of April actually. Still a lot of work to do up top.
