The first condo floor of the final setback is 51, so yep.

Welcome and thank you for an insider's view. Any truth to the "rumor" that Trump is thinking of raising the height?

No truth that I know of, if it was raised at all it could only be a few floors. The 50th was already poured to support the proposed height and thoose tolerances are usaually not flexible.

Thank you for the insight. Can you tell me if Trump settled the dispute that it is safe for allowing guests to take place in the hotel?

The only thing holding bovis up from handing hotel floors over is fire-proofing, i.e. caulking anything that passes through a fire wall. And caulking the stairs to the walls in emergency stair wells.
