Family Trump gears up to pitch International Hotel & Tower

Family Trump gears up to pitch International Hotel & Tower

By Susan Diesenhouse
Tribune staff reporter
Published May 22, 2007, 5:03 PM CDT


Boosting sales of the $850 million Trump International Hotel & Tower will be a family effort on Thursday morning. Appearing at the downtown construction site will be Donald Trump -- both senior and junior -- Ivanka and Eric, all of whom work on the project.

Ostensibly, the Trumps will be here to update the media on the progress of sales and mark construction reaching the 29th floor, topping off the hotel portion of the 92-story tower on the banks of the Chicago River. The hotel is slated to open in December.

The Skidmore Ownings & Merrill-designed glass-clad development also will include residential condominiums, retail, parking and outdoor park space.

But another likely reason for the Trumps' visit is to generate more sales for the project. Usually, a developer makes its profit on the last 25 percent of unit sales.

On that point, Trump still has quite a way to go. So far, the developer has sold 223 of its 339 hotel condominiums priced at an average $1,325 square foot and 378 of its 486 residential condominiums at an average price of $1093 square foot, according to Tere Proctor, Trumps' sales director in Chicago.

Sales progress has been slow. In January, Trump had sold 220 hotel units and 373 residential condominiums, according to Proctor at the time.

In one strategic shift, Trump has decided to add more hotel and residential condominiums by dividing up some larger three-bedroom units, Proctor said. "This better meets the needs of our buyers for whom this is a second or third home," she explained.

The hotel is to be opened in December??? So is the entire building supposed to at least be topped off, or are they beginning operations when the rest of the tower is still under construction?

Trumps plan is to start bringing in money asap. Yes, the lower Hotel portion of the building is going to up while the top residences are being constructed. Sounds kinda crazy if you ask me.

not really. happens alot these days. Sydneys talelst building- WORLD TOWER, was uc for 3 years. its 73 levels are split into 3 sections. the first 25 floors were opened to residents first while upper floors were being built. it had a separate lift lobby.then middle section was completed and then finally upper section.

You can see they corrected the "flawed" ramp by the way they laid the cladding supports in Retrograde's photos.

I wouldn't have minded if they decide not to put a facade on the ramp. With out the facade on Trump Tower it reminds me a little of the John Handcock Centers parking ramp here in Chicago. But, I can imagine why they want to cover the garage ...it's all about security or to cover up someone screw up on the ramp :P

FINALLY!!!!!!!! I'm happy about that... Only thing I am not sure... These glass panels aren't match the facades of Trump International Tower well... I will hold that judgement until they finished cladding that ramp first.
