I'm terribly sorry, but this is definately the wrong location for such a great tower! Who the hell wants to live in such a density and pay trump-prices?

Also included for owners of The Trump Ocean Club is a beautiful exclusive island about 20 miles offshore. But yeah, a Trump Tower with density, what where they thinking.

Huh? Have you been living in your cave? It is time for you to leave your cave and start do some serious traveling... Go to New York City, Chicago, Hong Kong, Vancouver B.C., etc. These cities have very high density and people are willing to pay more for homes they want to live in. Panama City isn't alone. I agree it is in wrong location but I think it should be built at that exact peninsula to stand out instead hide it around towers.

The location is not the best, it should be a the very tip of the point or here is where the Trump Ocean Club should be imo. Planned developement of Costa del Este. The Trump would stand out but at the same time have tall neighbors. (the third tower from the left u/c will be over 280 meters)

That is really bad planning!!! I think all high rises and suburban developments should be separated. It is too weird to have mansions to be surrounded by skyscrapers.

1. Where is public transportation system?
2. Where is the shopping district?
3. It is not walkable neighborhood.
4. It looks like it is hard to get around.
5. Streets are not organized well which makes it difficult to drive around.

I never seen any mansions to be built in the middle of skyscrapers forest before. It is new to me. I don't think I want to live in that type of neighborhood if I am that rich.

1. Panama City´s entire public transportation system is a mess until the light rail is built, this development is contained within Panama City proper and is bound by the City´s public transportation.

The shopping district is there, cannot be described going off 2 images

The rest... well go with what you apparently know, that´s fine.
oops, this is off topic

Lol, I guess that's just the Panama City planning system. I think it's not that bad, just nice for a change. All cities are separated in skyscraper and suburban districts, let's see how this will work out.

They arent all Mansions, as you call them. Most are lowrise apartments, condos and commercial. What should they do tear down all lowrise buildings?
I dont think Seattle did that?

Wow....that building is MASSIVE from the side.....it's going to dominate that side of the skyline.

Not bad planning at all....just the drive to have a good location on the beach. The mansions [if they are that indeed] around it were there first, but land is land and you know the first three rules...location...

You see this a lot on Houston....skyscrapers very close to neighborhoods...nice ones at that. A city without zoning can be really cool. I remember when the Transco tower was finished [called Williams Tower right?]...there was very little in the way of skyscrapers up next to it....the view was stunning.

Panama City has a world class skyline already, but Trump's tower will definitely set it apart.
