That's alright. Not many Torontonians like Trump either. Definitely one of the ugliest and most aesthetically controversial towers built in the history of the city.

One Bloor and Aura I think are great. Aura looks beastly and it's only a podium!

It feels like Trump has taken forever to clad this last upper portion.

caltrane74
Dec 3, 2011, 7:12 PM
Trump is barely noticeable. No one will complain long, and it's spire is sure to cause pandemonium when it's lit up at night. The spire structure is beautiful in itself. With the cladding applied, all bets are off.


I can't tell you how much I'm loving the spire.

Travis007
Dec 3, 2011, 7:36 PM
Yeah Trump is forgettable but makes a marginal difference in the skyline. It will fade into the urban fabric and everyone will be busy talking about the next prominent skyscrapers to emerge. That's why you gotta love Toronto's dynamic building boom. We're on the next one... :cool:

See folks, the difference between architecture by engineers and the budget guys (G+C/Aura) vs those who take their art seriously (aA/4$) is obvious here.

Neat facts on Trump Toronto

Read the Article Here

http://www.travelvideo.tv/news/canada/12-15-2011/trump-international-hotel-tower-toronto%C2%AE-reveals-compelling-details-in-advance-of-opening-january-31-2012



• Lifting the spire of the building (now Canada’s tallest residential structure) was the single largest lift in North America – if not the world? Weighing in at over 90 tons, it took over 12 hours to lift the spire in place on the roof of the hotel.



• The wall mosaic in the porte-cochere consists of 500,000 handmade, hand-cut tiles, which took a crew of 20 artists three months to make? Up close, the work entitled “A Small Part of Something Larger” by Canadian artist Stephen Andrews will disclose a textural pattern of porcelain, glass, stone and gold. From afar, the mosaic reveals an image of a stadium filled with cheering people.

16 December 2011: Needs to be twinned (as in another aA tower, not a direct copy) to make for a proper gateway to the avenue. Also I wonder if the sales centre will make way for another tower?

And does anyone else get the sense that this glass is slightly darker the rest of the cladding we've seen so far?

Based on the render:

http://urbantoronto.ca/sites/default/files/imagecache/display-default/images/projects/132/132-137.jpg

my guess is that the panels on the left of androiduk's pic will be on the east and west facades, and the panel on the right will be on the north facade (or maybe the north facade will have mullion free glass, as there is a pronounced "lip" along the edges up the NE and NW corners of the tower, which may indicate the connection of different curtain/window wall systems)



Even on the floorplans at the ltower website, the layouts show different curtain/window wall configurations for the north (top of pic) and east (right of pic) walls:

http://www.theltower.com/images/floorplan_thumb_Lo-L11.jpg

Interesting observation on L Tower...

What floor is Aura on now? last time I saw it, they were starting the 8th floor. Must be getting close to double digits now.

caltrane74
Jan 4, 2012, 2:30 PM
200 m or taller: 23
8 built
8 under construction
7 proposals

Between 100 and 199 m: 133
46 built?
15 under construction?
72 proposals

Well....


There are definitely several proposals missing from the 200m+, but no where near the 17 additional needed to fulfill caltranes sig. Still ~30 200M plus buildings is very impressive for a city Toronto's size.
.


I'll start a list in this post of all the potential 200 meter towers not on the list.

1. Eau de Soilel - 65 Floors
2. Yorkville Parking Deck - 2 Towers 55 Floors/45 Floors
3. 60 Harbour - 2 Towers potentially

So we are now at 27

Just 13 to go!!!

LeftCoaster
Jan 4, 2012, 3:04 PM
120 harbour will likely be announced next year although not necessarily proposed, containing at least one 200M + building but likely 2.

There are a few more in the works too but they are not yet public.

Hey, after BAC and Trump I though it couldn't get any better with regards to Toronto skyscraper construction. But now I see the true overlord of Toronto Skyscraper construction, and it's name is Aura. One Bloor and ICE will NOT be able to match this beast in anyway. As far as I am concerned its up to the proposed supertalls to beat this thing in category awesome.

It's just as I suspected. It's funny listening to people act sad and upset that they're using window-wall on the tower. Personally I think what they have started to put up is better then what I was anticipating so this tower still ranks a solid 7/10 on my interest chart. Also people should wait for more then just a tiny section to reserve judgement. The choice of window-wall might look great when more is installed.
