Trump Taj Mahal Announces New 45 Story Hotel Tower

Rising 485 feet above Atlantic City, it will give Donald Trump's gaming empire some much-needed upward mobility.

Plans were submitted Tuesday for a 45-story addition to the Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort that will serve as the centerpiece of the company's post-bankruptcy turnaround.

Besides the financial benefits, the new 800-room hotel tower will allow Trump to reclaim bragging rights for Atlantic City's tallest building. Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, which tops out at 479 feet, eclipsed the Taj Mahal's existing 42-story tower by 64 feet when it opened in 2003. Now Trump will take back the title by a mere 6 feet.

“That was not a major factor in our thinking,” Trump said, denying any deliberate plan to build the tallest structure. “But I always like height.”

Architectural renderings show the Trump name emblazoned on the top of the tower in gigantic letters. Pending regulatory approvals, construction of the estimated $250 million project is expected to begin in June, with completion by summer 2008.
