As a thriving center of culture and commerce, Istanbul inspires bold new standards of living. Trump Towers Istanbul complements the city’s world renowned beauty, culture and sophistication, as it combines the highest levels of luxury with the most presitigous location, spectacular views, and stunning architecture. The property, the first to bear the Trump name in Europe, will be unlike anything built before it. I am very proud to present you with a new Istanbul landmark: Trump Towers Istanbul” says Donald J. Trump.
Istanbul has been the setting of magnificent tales throughout history, captivating the world’s imagination with stories of sultans with opulent palaces and mysterious harems, caravan merchants with silks and exotic spices. From the famous covered bazaar to the Orient Express, time has passed, the world has changed and so have the stories; yet the charm of Istanbul never ceases to exist. With its rich history, Istanbul has always been the center of culture and trade; it should therefore come as no surprise that the world’s most famous real estate magnate, Donald J. Trump, has chosen Istanbul as the location for the first European project to bear his name. Trump is becoming a part of the centuries old history of Istanbul with the most prestigious construction project in this precious city.
Trump Towers Istanbul is comprised of a 39-story, 204-unit residential tower, a 37-story, 86-unit office tower, and a seven floor retail platform, Trump Towers Mall, which is comprised of 194 units.

Residents have already begun to occupy the tower and are privy to enjoy 24-hour white glove concierge service, state-of-the-art technology systems in every unit, a private lounge area with library, bar and kids club, a well-being center as well as a private wine cellar. The office tower boasts the concept of “New Work” which was developed to combine unique attributes of the office building with white glove services and abundant amenities of the entire Trump Towers complex, creating a full lifestyle proposition. Business owners and their employees now have all of their professional and personal needs met in one central location- an unparalleled concept in Istanbul.
“At Trump Towers Istanbul the bar has been raised.
