Trump Tower going up in early '07

59 posts in this topic


Thanks TSmith for posting this GREAT NEWS ! Very good to hear it's a "Go" ! They stayed committed. Wow, 67 stories New Orlean's new tallest ! Hope they put a fancy enough crown on top to re-take the title "Gulf Coast Tallest" between Houston and Miami; Mobile's new RSA Tower is now holding stake to that claim, hopefully Trump Tower will be taller. Sorry Mobile.

I agree... Mobile's RSA tower has a ridiculous crown, accounting for about 20% of its height. I know people in some circles don't like crowns, but I think it'd be a nice touch to get us back where we belong... above Mobile.

^No doubt, New Orleans should be higher than Mobile.

And I love the RSA Tower as well... an awesome building for a city the size of Mobile.

I do think we will have the tallest in New Orleans again soon, if not from the Trump Tower than from another building. The problem with the 700 foot figure listed for Trump Tower is that that is the figure used when the tower was originally supposed to be 60 stories tall, but it has since been increased to 67. So who knows how tall it actually will be.

And I agree with TSmith, I think the size of the spire on RSA is just silly. Over 150 feet of the building's height is spire, and it's so large that I think it makes the overall building look worse. The building itself looks great, but sorry, the spire just makes up way to much of the building.

The spire definitely would look better if the building were taller, but I love the building itself.

Oh same here, I think the building itself looks great, but it's the spire I'm not a fan of.

I feel the same way about the spire on the BOA in Atlanta. Spires are O.K., if they are proportional. But the spire in Atlanta looks like a giant cage they took from a zoo. Mobile is making a big statement with RSA, I like the tower itself too. But the spire is a bit ludicrous. Kinda like saying Atlanta's is taller than Houston's tallest; Is like Mobile saying it's tallest is taller than New Orleans tallest.

^I actually like the spire on BOA Plaza in Atlanta, but that is mainly because the rest of the tower is still around 850+ feet tall, which is plenty tall. But RSA in Mobile is dis-proportional IMO, because the rest of the tower isn't tall enough to be topped with a spire that large.

BTW guys, Trump Tower New Orleans has been added as an official development on Donald Trump's website. To view the project, click "property portfolio" then "future developments" and then "New Orleans." Link

Thanks for posting that Nate. What a big boost for New Orleans. The Trump Tower will go great with the proposed Jazz District !

The spire on the Chrysler Building can't be beat, so it seems everyone's trying to replicate it on buildings of all different heights.

Hey, you never know man! Maybe the casino's will really take off up in Shreveport, and maybe Trump is an LSU fan! ;)

I'd always actually hoped for a Trump Casino & Hotel here, but it never happened.

Thanks... I can dream I guess, New Orleans is so close Mr. Trump would just hop in the limo after the L.S.U. game and head back to New Orleans. Wait the traffic :o Maybe he could just take a helicopter.

Brian, what yall have their now is great ! I would gladly take the glitzy/golden Horsehoe casino hotel here along the riverfront in BR. Casino Rouge could have a hotel on site in the works. If it would be anything close to the Horsehoe I'd start doing flips !!!

I hope they do build a hotel. Even if it's not like the Horseshoe, as long as it's a decent facility it ought to work wonders for their business and for the look of your downtown area.

I'm suprised (& very excited) that this project will start so soon!

Does anyone know when the floorplans will be finished?

From what I knew, floorplans and final renderings of the tower should be out soon. :thumbsup:
