It's tough to trump 58 stories of office, residential, and retail space in midtown Manhattan. Deck the interior with marble, brass, and mirrors galore and cover the building in gleaming tinted glass, and you've got yourself a moneymaking giant.
Trump Tower, developed by business magnate Donald Trump and the Equitable Life Insurance Company, was designed by renowned architect Der Scott and completed on November 30, 1983. To some, the tower symbolizes the excess of the '80s, while others view the skyscraper as a symbol of American success. One could easily interpret its towering black facade as dark and oppressive or as a beautiful work of art.
Explore the sky-lighted atrium inside. At 100 feet high, the mirrored space features a magnificent waterfall at the center of all your favorite luxury shops and specialty cafés. Twelve floors of offices and forty floors of apartments occupy the soaring space above. The building's notched facade provides plenty of windows for its high-end occupants, keeping apartment prices in the seven and eight-figure range.
