    Donald Trump has lined up three New York hedge funds, including money from billionaire George Soros, to invest $160 million in his Chicago skyscraper, a key piece in perhaps the largest construction financing in the city's history, according to real estate sources and public documents. Despite reports about the project's record-breaking sales, most of them from Trump himself, many Chicago real estate developers and lenders have expressed doubts about whether the 90-story tower would ever be built."It is such a huge project, and the prices he said he was getting were so outside the norm," said Robert Glickman, president and...

    Miss Puerto Rico Destiny Velez has been indefinitely suspended by the official Miss America Organization after sending a series of offensive anti-Muslim messages on Twitter. Velez, 20, launched an anti-Muslim tirade at filmmaker Michael Moore on Thursday after he shared a photo of himself outside of Trump Tower in New York City with a sign reading: 'We are all Muslim.' Moore's photo was in response to Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump's proposal to ban Muslims from entering the US, which inspired the hashtag #WeAreAllMuslim on social media. The former beauty queen sent a number of tweets directed to Moore including...

    The Donald may denounce illegal immigrants as rapists, but his empires crown jewel was erected on land cleared by a small army of undocumented Polish workers, a lawsuit alleged. The use of undocumented workers on a Trump construction site such as the hotel described by The Washington Post this week is certainly nothing new. Thirty-five years ago, a small army of illegal immigrants was used to clear the site for what became the crown jewel of Donald Trumps empire. The 200 demolition workersnicknamed the Polish Brigade because of their home countryworked 12-hour shifts, seven days a week with no overtime...

    Its black glass exterior soars high above Fifth Avenue, and its gold-tipped revolving doors have spun the likes of Bruce Willis and Anne Hathaway into its waterfall-splashed atrium. But on Election Day, Trump Tower earned a different sort of distinction: a tiny island of Romneyville amid Manhattans deep, blue-state sea. Mr. Romney won a single Manhattan precinct outright, a stretch of Park Avenue near the Waldorf-Astoria, where six voters showed up and four chose the Republican. But he suffered a resounding defeat in New York, a rare outbreak of consensus in a city famous for fevered disagreement: in 91...

    "Before adjourning for its annual August recess, the City Council also gave final zoning approval to Trump Tower Chicago." Chicago Sun-Times Aug.1, 2002 Last paragraph at this link. GREAT artists renderings HERE! Hi All, Yep, it'll be called Trump Tower Chicago. It'll be the 4th tallest in the city, at 1,125 feet it's only 2 feet shorter than number 3--the John Hancock! Constuction begins next year 2003 and finishes in 2006. From all I've been reading about the new WTC in NYC, it seems as if NYC is wimping out. It's looking more and more like they're NOT gonna replace...
