Trump Plans Luxury Condos

Donald Trump said yesterday that he would build a 45-story luxury condominium high-rise along the Delaware waterfront called Trump Tower Philadelphia.

The $190 million project - similar to Trump Tower buildings planned for Las Vegas; Tampa, Fla.; and Chicago - will consist of at least 250 units on Penn Street near the foot of Spring Garden Street, with construction to begin this summer and completion expected in mid-2008.

"I'm really excited about this project," Trump, the developer, casino mogul and reality-television star, said yesterday from his office in New York City. "It will be the tallest building on the waterfront. It is going to be really beautiful."

Trump Tower would be five stories higher than the 40-story towers being built nearby at Waterfront Square at 900 Penn St. Trump would not disclose the exact address, saying his company was in the middle of completing the land purchase.
