Trump International Hotel & Tower Toronto is now approaching 21 storeys and cladding continues to rise. Here's a shot of the east side. Yikes! What's up with the blank wall? Couldn't they continue the same cladding treatment they have for the other sides, which also cover the parking levels after all? Well that was our initial thought when we saw the photo. Then one of the forum members reminded us of a plan put forth to expand the north end of Scotiatower's podium (lower left). The added height would basically block the view of this wall in the future. Good to hear.
