when tomms posts on a thread... you know you have to check it out ^^^
i'm really disoriented... where did you take that shot from??? it looks like it's taken from a high altitude.... Shangri-la??? or a UFO?
BTW: How high are the ceilings on the master bedroom skyplex thing? they look real short in comparison to the floors below.
and interesting to note, in Tomms pics, due to the weird angle, the setback on the North Side looks RETARDEDLY out of place!
Judging from the angle(north of Trump) and the height(approx. 750ft) Its from Shangri-la's crane.
A very nice helicopter video by Dimitry49 on Youtube... shows Trump, Shangri-la, and all those sexy ones!
*when the camera was approaching the CBD from the north, I was like, "wait for it... wait for it" in anticipation for Trump close-up, then!--- 'pans to CN Tower'... ... what a block...
the east side of the dome looks to be fully clad. it's hard to see the exact colour from the ground, but it has a light grey tone to it.
I suspect The Toronto Star's Christopher Hume has let his leftist political views cloud any real architectural critique of this building. This majestic piece of post-modernism doesn't try to hide that it is a towering symbol of capitalist wealth. That's something that doesn't sit well in his socialist wonderland.
do you guys remember those official video updates Trump did every few months documenting progress??? what happened to those??? did they give up?... have budget issues? lol!... i miss those... i thought they'd post one updating the towers progress/onion dome completion.
The temporary steel box around the spire is now completely removed. The onion dome looks spectacular even without the glass!
