The Trump Organization and Nakheel to Sell Most Expensive Penthouse in Dubai
Star-Studded Event with Heidi Klum, Demi Moore, and other A-List Celebrities Marks the Occasion
Two of the world's leading developers - Nakheel and the Trump Organization - have come together to announce the Trump International Hotel & Tower in Dubai on the Palm Jumeirah, the iconic man-made island in the Arabian Gulf. A grand celebration occurred at Park Avenue Plaza in New York City…with a red-carpet reception under a 60-foot dome erected for the event. Donald J. Trump, Melania Trump, Ivanka Trump, Demi Moore, Naomi Watts, Heidi Klum, Al Roker & Deborah Roberts, Thom Filicia, Amy Sacco, Denise Rich, Ann Jones, Jonathan Tisch, Aby Rosen & Samantha Boardman, Marvin Traub, Kelly Bensimon, Dylan Lauren, Eric Villency & Kimberly Guilfoyle, Sante D'Orazio are a few of the many celebrities who were in attendance at the larger-than-life event.
To celebrate this project, Trump and Nakheel also commissioned Nathan Sawaya, Lego Master to the Stars (remember Ashley Simpson's Bee?), to build a 14-foot replica of this newest development in New York City's Columbus Circle.
A masterpiece of architecture, the 62-story, stainless steel and glass Trump International Hotel & Tower will be the tallest structure on Palm Jumeirah and is expected to be completed in summer 2011. The property will be comprised of two freestanding towers that straddle the centerline of Palm Jumeirah, making it the gateway to the heart of the development. The towers stand on a four-story bisected podium structure converging at the 40th-floor to create the building's glazed diamond shaped pinnacle. This distinctive design will offer residents and guests unobstructed panoramic views of the Arabian Gulf and beyond.
A highlight of the spectacular Trump International Hotel & Tower will be the two expansive penthouse residences designed by one of Architectural Digests Top 100 interior designers, Kelly Hoppen. Hoppen is best known for introducing the "East Meets West" philosophy to interior design, which has remained her signature over the years. The classic Kelly Hoppen look is defined by using straight lines, symmetry and a neutral and subtle color palette to create balance within the home.
