Perini Sign to Build Trump Tower

Donald J. Trump and partner Phil G. Ruffin awarded Perini Building Co.
, a wholly owned subsidiary of Perini Corp, a $370 million construction contract to build Trump International Hotel & Tower Las Vegas.“To be associated with a Trump project is a great opportunity for any company. Our first experience working with Trump was in 1990 when Perini was brought on board to complete the Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City. We look forward to working on this high profile project and know the final product will be like no other,” said Dick Rizzo, chairman of Perini Building Co.
According to representatives of Trump Las Vegas Sales & Marketing Inc., 100 percent of the condominium units in the tower have been reserved. Prices range from $600,000 to $6 million.
The entire project is designed for opulence, including the exterior that will be clad in 24-carat gold glass. When complete, the tower will stand 640 feet tall with 64 stories, making it the highest structure in Las Vegas.
The project features 1,282 condominium hotel units ranging from studios to multiple room suites. All of the units will be luxuriously furnished and include floor to ceiling windows, European-style kitchen appliances, Italian marble floors in the entries and baths, large bathrooms with twin sinks, custom designed vanities, marble counter tops, and spa tubs in the master baths. The sixth floor will have a 36,000-square foot recreation deck and pool. The condominium hotel tower and five-story garage encompass 2 million square feet and sit on six acres.
Bergman, Walls and Associates, Ltd. is the architect on the project. The interior design firm is Design 360 Unlimited.
Perini broke ground in July and will complete construction by the first quarter of 2008. Perini recently completed the $3 million, custom-designed sales center that features two furnished model units and a 10-foot revolving replica of the tower.
Trump International Hotel & Tower Las Vegas is located west of the New Frontier Hotel, just off the Las Vegas Strip.
