This is my second highrise project: The Trump World Tower in New York. I began building in november last year and it will finished in summer this year. Actually it has a height of 40,16 inches (102 centimeters) and will reach a height of 78,74 inches (200 centimeters) when it is finished. The building has no interior yet, but i will do it eventually. This is my second built after a real existing building. I hope you enjoy it. Sorry for the partly blurry pics. I will do new pictures if i have a better camera. Comments very welcome :)
About this creation
The golden entrance to the lobby with two fountains outside.
The roof with some antennas, elevator shaft, flashing light, and the air conditioning system.
This is the battery pack for the led flashing light on the roof.
And now the led lighting string and battery pack for the inside lighting.

I might be wrong, but, it looks smaller than minifig scale does nt it? racer scale maybe? that would be cool, no one did it before to such extent, but the emporum is nt right then...
Yes, it's a bit smaller than minifig scale. It's really expensive building this Tower with an height of 2 meters when it's finished. So i choosed a slightly smaller scale than minifg. I think it fits well to all the buildings around. Thank you very much for your comment :)

WOW!!! Wherever did you find that many legos? Anyway great job!!!
Thanks a lot for your kind comment ;) Glad that you like it. Buyed this black and transblack Legos at PAB. Was around 500 Euros. But need more of it. Will reach a height of about 2 meters with this building. Actually it has the half :)

Cool!!! Did you use lifelites for the lighting? I am considering buying them for my buildings.
Thank you Alex. I don't know what you mean with lifelites. I'm from Germany and have no translation for "lifelites". I used led lighting strings with leds solded on a thin copper line and a battery pack with on/off switch. You can see it on the pictures. These lights aren't selfmade.

Wow, a beautiful building! That entrance looks very nice and the exterior walls gives it a clean and slick look. It will be a seriously cool build when it is finished :-)
Thank you very much. This is the reason why i build this building. It has this clean and slick look and i like the black facade. Designing the entrance was very difficult. Thanks again for your kind comment. :)

This is an amazing project, and a very committed builder, you might want to check out brick-link to see if you can save some money, it tends to be half what lego would charge me for parts.
Thank you so much for your comment James. I'm very pleased. Also thanks your tip with brick-link. I'll have a look on it. :) Regards, Sven
