Standard height & Roof height: 450 meters (1476 feet)

Floor count: 115

City: New York City

This is a vision project, but it’s the tallest among these buildings, so it’s worth to mention it here, but other visions and failed projects will not be included here. I will write a post focused on visions and cancelled projects developed by Donald Trump later. Note this is not the tallest buildings envisioned by Donald Trump if the buildings not named after Trump but developed by him are included.

This project was envisioned by Ken Gardner, who used to participate in the design of the original World Trade Center as a structural engineer.

He first named his concept as Twin Towers II, by the coincidence Donald Trump had the very same idea. He dislikes the design of Freedom Tower, saying that is just made of a pile of junk, he wants a stronger twin towers to be built in Downtown, he became the most renowned backer of Gardner’s plan, therefore the project got its name of Trump World Trade Center.

Donald Trump tried to persuade the developer to rebuild the Twin Towers through collecting the petition of citizens, he collected a considerable amount of that but still failed to make developer adopt his idea.

Architectural height: 423 meters (1389 feet)

Roof height: 357 meters (1171 feet)

Built year: 2009

City: Chicago

In July 2001 Donald Trump announced he would build the tallest building in the world in Chicago with a height of 457 meters, surpassing the 452 m Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur, which were the tallest buildings in the world by that time. But he changed the idea after the September 11 attacks which occurred two months later.

At last the tower was set to be 423 meters tall measured to its tip of spire, and only 357 meters without the spire.

Except of retail spaces and restaurants set at the bottom of the tower, the tower mainly functions as hotels and residences, it includes a hotel containing 339 suits, and residential floors featuring 486 luxury condominium units.

The tower was designed by Adrian Smith of SOM, the same architect who later designed the renowned Burj Khalifa.

The tower was heavily featured in 2011 American science fiction action film Transformers: Dark of the Moon, which grossed $1.12 billion of box office worldwide.
