Built as an office building in 1967, this 44-story tower was converted to a hotel-condominium by Donald Trump and investors in 1995-97. Re-faced with a bronze glass skin, the architect was Philip Johnson. Costas Kondylis, one of New York's most prolific architects, was responsible for planning the interiors. A silver copy of the Unisphere, from the 1964 World's Fair, sits at the south corner of the site, facing Columbus Circle.
