(PRWEB) June 3, 2005
Over the weekend of May 30th and 31st, Ivana Trump was spotted in Las Vegas, Nevada. Ivana, the first ex-wife of real estate mogul Donald Trump, is lending her name to the 73-story luxury condo project formerly known as The Summit Las Vegas. The renamed high-rise, The Ivana, will be the tallest residential building in Las Vegas and is being developed by Australian Victor Altomare. By contrast, the DonaldÂs Trump International Hotel and Tower will rise an impressive 64 stories - 9 stories short of his ex.
Donald Trump boasted to Larry King that his Trump International Hotel and Tower would be Âabsolutely fantastic. There will be nothing like it in Las Vegas.Â The Trump Tower has already galvanized the Las Vegas high rise market with dozens of projects from various developers being rushed to the drawing board. ÂWhen Donald Trump announced plans to build it Vegas, it attracted the attention of the rest of the world. It helped legitimatize Las Vegas as a high rise condo marketÂ, says Beverly Lacey a specialty high rise REALTOR in Las Vegas.
The New York Daily News recently cited a close friend of IvanaÂs as saying ÂIvana is investing her world-class fame. She was the guiding force in designing the interiors of Trump Tower, The Plaza, and The Grand Hyatt New York.Â Lets hope she does better in Vegas than Miami, Florida where she lent her fame to a waterfront projected called Bentley Bay. The south beach developer of that project has been accused of fraud and filed bankruptcy for protection.
Construction on The Ivana is scheduled to begin July, 2005 whereas DonaldÂs Trump Tower Las Vegas will break ground sometime in late 2005. Trump Tower I has already sold out and Trump Tower II will begin taking reservations in December, 2005.
