Design for $600 million Trump Intl. Hotel & Tower unveiled
[Saturday, April 29, 2006 3:20:00 pm]



Nakheel, developer of more than US$30 billion in real estate in Dubai, and The Trump Organization have unveiled a new design for the Trump International Hotel & Tower, the centerpiece of The Palm Jumeirah.

Donald J. Trump, Jr., son of Donald J. Trump, and Executive Vice President of Development and Acquisitions, The Trump Organization, is in Dubai to reveal details about the new design and discuss The Trump Organization’s increased involvement in the UAE. Speaking at the Arabian Hotel and Investment Conference (29th April to 1st May), he will discuss mixed use developments & condo hotels and feature in a round table discussion on private equity in the Middle East. On the 2nd May, he will be present on the Nakheel stand at the Arabian Travel Market.

Trump International Hotel & Tower, The Palm Jumeirah is the initial development in Nakheel and The Trump Organization’s joint-venture in the Middle East, which includes exclusive rights for 19 countries in the Middle East region and 17 major brands. It is also the first UAE property in the portfolio of Nakheel Hotels & Resorts, Nakheel’s hotel and resort investment company, which was launched in February this year. On announcing the partnership in October 2005, Donald J. Trump, Chairman and President of The Trump Organization, who is known throughout the world for his luxurious real estate developments, stated that the organization’s architects and designers would engage closely with Nakheel Hotels & Resorts on the design. The results of the partnership have now been released.

The US$600 million Trump International Hotel & Tower, The Palm Jumeirah is a stunning 48 storey mixed-use hotel and residential building, anchoring the trunk of the 5 by 5km man made palm tree shaped island which lies off the coast of Dubai. The first of three such islands to be built in Dubai, The Palm Jumeirah will be one of the world’s premier resorts, offering a wealth of beachfront hotels, residences, retail and leisure.

The new ultra-modern design, features a split linked tower – an innovative open core design that minimizes shadows – constructed with stainless steel, glass and stone.

Regarding the new design, Donald J. Trump, Jr. said: “In redesigning the property, we focused on creating a magnet for tourists and residents and a landmark icon on the Dubai skyline. Trump International Hotel & Tower, The Palm Jumeirah will soar into the sky, its twin sets of glazed diamond shaped structures at the top of each tower creating a sense of infinity as the glazed elements blur building and sky”.

Sultan Ahmed bin Sulayem, Executive Chairman, Nakheel stated: “The new design ensures that the property will be a striking landmark – a bold monument at the heart of the island. The property’s taller, more slender design allows for a linear view through the building to the top of the island and provides spectacular panoramas of the island, Dubai and the Arabian Gulf, with all rooms benefiting from a sea view.” “In building the vision of Dubai, Nakheel is committed to creating genuinely unique projects which are at the forefront of innovation", Sultan Ahmed bin Sulayem continued. "The new design of the Trump International Hotel and Tower lives up to this commitment and will provide a fitting landmark centerpiece for The Palm Jumeirah, our flagship development.

“As the world’s fastest growing city, it is important that Dubai forms progressive partnerships with prominent international organizations. Our alliance with The Trump Organization is a fantastic example of how such partnerships can operate successfully. The Trump International Hotel and Tower is the first example of this success”

The centrepiece tower is usually the tallest in the whole development and usually in the centre, so in this case in the centre of the island.

I think this new trump tower looks like crap, its way too futuristic looking and just doesnt fit into this whole enviroment of the plam island, if it was somewhere in Business Bay or something then it would be ok, but I think it just doesn't fit into the whole setting and sucks really....

It would have been good for palm jebel ali since the general theme there is more modern.

that is actually true.

indeed, the palm jumeirah has almost only classic architecture, which fits into the island paradise theme.

the tower's design is gorgeous however, but not as a Palm Jum centrepiece.

Actually I'll take what I said back. It's better in the palm jumeirah because it's something completely different from the rest of the development. Also doesn't look cheesy like the last design.
