Trump World Tower
Structure in General
- The building's units have views of Manhattan and the East River through a glass curtain wall.
- The building is supported on Manhattan Rock with bearing capacity of 40 tons per square foot.
- The lateral force resisting system consists of shear walls and frames interacting for the full height of the building with a perimeter concrete "belt" at mid-height and a perimeter concrete "hat" at the top.
- The belt and hat are full-story concrete walls that form a tube around the perimeter of the tower.
- In the preliminary design stages, structural steel was considered very briefly. Concrete framing was chosen for the following reasons: better overall response to wind, reduced floor-to-floor height, elimination of ceiling finishes, better soundproofing, and construction schedule.
- Trump World Tower was the world's tallest all-residential tower from 2000 to 2002, when it was surpassed by Tower Palace Three, Tower G in Seoul.
- The 22-storey United Engineering Center formerly occupied this site.
- The tower's simple slab shape provides sharp contrast to the nearby 100 United Nations Plaza Tower, adorned with balconies and topped with a wedge.
- Tallest building to go up in the city since Citigroup Center in 1977.
- The building has a small but plush lobby.
- The apartment prices, premium location and posh amenities like fireplaces in certain apartments have made the building popular with the very richest and most famous.
- The plant room contains a 600-ton tuned mass damper.
