    depends on who you ask... Con Ed is looking to get an FAR of 12 for the site, and the NIMBYs are trying to get an FAR of 6... but there's a seperate discussion for that one.

    i like sound of that, but why is trump using one of these asia tactics of a big spire to make it taller than esb nys tallest at the moment?
    For one thing, the ESB won't be NY's tallest much longer.

    As far as his Chicago tower goes, Donald Trump wanted to get rid of the spire altogher, going with a tower of 1,125 ft. It was changed due to the mayor of Chicago wanting a spire on the tower. Donald Trump could have built his 2,000 ft tower in Chicago as planned, but is going with his scaled down version.

    I sure hope he does. I cannot stand him as an individual but he has done awesome things for New York. He'll go down as one of the most important people in NY's history. I think he still has something up his sleeve what with his new success w/ his show.

    Definitely think it's possible.

    Donald Trump is one of those New York personalities. Love or hate him, he's not going anywhere.

    The Donald unveils Trump University


    Donald Trump unveiled his latest project Monday: Trump University--an online education venture offering business and real estate classes.

    The Web site, http://www.trumpuniversity.com, offers 16-week nondegree courses in marketing, real estate and entrepreneurship at a cost of $300 each. The site also sells self-assessment tools, books by the real estate mogul, and merchandise such as Trump U. sweatshirts.

    Michael Sexton, who was most recently a partner at business development firm Par Three Ventures, was named president. The faculty will include John Vogel Jr., an adjunct professor of business administration at Dartmouth College's Tuck School of Business, and Don Sexton, professor of business at Columbia University and president of management consulting firm Arrow Group Ltd.

    Trump U. is the latest in a series of branded ventures by the Donald, whose Trump Hotels & Casinos Resorts Inc. just completed its emergence from bankruptcy protection last week. They include luxury lifestyle magazine Trump World, a menís clothing line, and a cologne.

    Just think, you can get a Trump-U degree while sitting at home in your Trump business suit drinking Trump Ice water.

    Shamelessly tacky. Gotta love the Donald.

    I just noticed today that they removed the trees on the staggered setbacks of Trump Tower on Fifth. Anyone know what's the deal and if they'll be replaced?
