Over the years, Trump has owned and sold many great buildings in New York including the Plaza Hotel (which he renovated and brought back to its original grandeur), the St. Moritz Hotel (three times…and now called the Ritz Carlton on Central Park South) and recently, the land under the Empire State Building (which allowed the land and lease to be merged together for the first time in over 50 years).
Additionally, the NikeTown store is owned by Trump, on East 57th Street and neighboring Tiffany's.
In 1999, the Trump International Hotel and Tower opened its doors to the world. This 52-story, mixed-use, super-luxury hotel and residential building is located on the crossroads of Manhattan's West Side, on Central Park West at Columbus Circle. It is designed by the world-famous architect, Philip Johnson, and has gotten the highest sales prices and rentals in the U.S.
The Trump International Hotel and Tower is one of only three hotels in the United States that has received five stars from Mobil for both the hotel and restaurant. It has also received the Five Star Diamond Award from the American Academy of Hospitality Services.
Trump is also the owner of the largest parcel of land in New York City, the former West Side Rail Yards. On this 100-acre property, fronting along the Hudson River from 59th Street to 72nd Street, the biggest development ever approved by the New York City Planning Commission is being built.
When completed, this $5 billion project, known as Trump Place, will have 5,700 residential units and more than 5 million square feet of commercial space. Permits will soon be sought for an additional three thousand residential units and commercial space on the most southerly (and largest) portion of the site.
Including the parking garages, Trump Place will encompass over 10,000,000-square feet of space (as a comparison, the AOL Time Warner Building is approximately two-million square feet.) Thus far, five towers have been completed and are occupied, and two additional buildings are under construction. There will be a total of 18 buildings on the site.
Another recent acquisition in New York City is The Trump Building at 40 Wall Street, the landmark 1.3 million square foot, 72-story building located in Manhattan's Financial District, directly across from the New York Stock Exchange and the tallest building in downtown Manhattan. This purchase, which took place at the depths of the New York City real-estate market, is said to be one of the best real estate deals made in the last 25 years.
It was totally empty when purchased and is now 100% leased to prestigious tenants such as American Express, Bear Stearns and CNA Insurance. In addition, Trump built 610 Park Avenue (at 64th Street), formerly known as the Mayfair Regent Hotel, which was very successfully converted into super-luxury condominium apartments getting, at that time, the highest prices on Park Avenue.
The Trump World Tower in NYC is the tallest residential tower in the world at 90 stories high.
Further east, adjacent to the United Nations, sits the brand new Trump World Tower, a 90-story luxury residential building … the tallest residential tower in the world. The Trump World Tower has received rave reviews from the architectural critics with Herbert Muschamp of the New York Times, calling it "a handsome hunk of a glass tower. – less–ZoomInfo
