Facts

  • The building was the tallest concrete-framed tower in the city at the time of its completion.
  • Intended for an exclusive, wealthy clientele, the luxurious shopping experience at the base of the structure is accessible to the general public.
  • A cascading waterfall directly across from the entrance forms the monumental centerpiece of the open interior.
  • Trump Tower is a sleek high-rise clad in dark reflective glass with setbacks beginning near of the base of the building which lessen the impact of its bulk on the street below.
  • A residential tower, this building takes its architectural cues from the surrounding commercial district in a posh area of Manhattan located at the crossroads of Midtown and Central Park.
  • The corner facing the intersection of Fifth Avenue and 56th Street is sliced off in a series of setbacks (forming a sort of hanging garden and place for festive displays), with the corner above that broken diagonally into a series of sawtooth edges running to the top.
  • The cooperation between the architect and developer was a result of Donald Trump's impression with the style Scutt had shown with the "crowned" design of One Astor Plaza, making it distinguishable from the glass-box designs of that day.
  • Though the tower was built with 58 floors, it is marketed as having 68. The residential floors are numbered based on the height of the commercial floors below rather than the actual floor count.
  • Trump Tower was built on the site of the Stewart & Company Store.
