I don't know if it sold yet, but the building's penthouse condo is on the 89th floor. It's 14,260 sq. ft. with 5 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms, per the website.
i checked redfin and its not listed anymore so my guess it was bought but there are still 140 condos left to sell.

I've heard quite a few times that Donald purchased the penthouse for himself.

Why would anyone need more bathrooms than bedrooms?

A bathroom for each bedroom, at least one half bathroom/"water closet"/"powder room" for guests, a bathroom for the home gym, etc...

Hello, I'm newly registered here but have been reading this board for quite some time. I'll start off by sharing this picture that I took on April 7, 2009:

Fantastic photos. I love the exterior cladding of this but I find the form messy and it does lack coherence when viewed in the wider perspective. But it does look quality and makes a massive impact on the skyline!

I don't think anyone has ever posted a picture from that angle before. I have seen hundreds of Trump photos but for some reason I never noticed that ugly corner.

That picture is either a freak of science/nature, or has been altered. It shows a 90 degree angle up that side of the building, when in reality, it's 45 degrees (or less). Look at any other picture in this thread, and you'll see.

(an example from the Chicago forum: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showpo...postcount=1502)

Is it just me, or does that picture look like the original design of 78 floors? Maybe it's an old render with the construction elevator stuck on the side.
