That's because it's really skinny and has a long spire among larger adjacent buildings with higher roofs.

Looks like there is an investor revolt for the delayed opening.

Donald Trump’s luxury hotel launch lacks luster for some buyers

They literally picked the worst possible plot in the city to build this. It's completely swallowed by the surrounding buildings.

Hotels don't pick locations so that people on SSC can get nice shots of their building in the skyline, they pick locations that are centrally located to businesses, attractions, shopping, etc. appealing to their client base. Trump Hotel and the people who bought condos want a location in the financial district. This lot is about as good as you can get.

It's a decent tower but it can't beat the beautiful BMO building.

I dont really like how it turns out. The crown is so small, too tall and out proportioned. and with that curve reminds me a lot of something like a very slim *****.

It has unfortunately no impact on the skyline, and I don't understand why this one is still 282 meters. Change this to 236 meters, that's its real height.

The tower is nice but not good placed. The skyline-center looks a bit unbalanced now.
