As of this month the five penthouses in the brand new Trump SoHo Hotel Condominium, being built as we speak in NewYork, are on sale exclusively in the UAE. This offer is brought to the Emirates by Prodigy International, the exclusive sales and marketing organisation for the Trump SoHo Hotel.

Due to open next summer the Trump SoHo is the only luxury hotel condominium in Manhattan’s fashionable SoHo neighbourhood.

Towering above all the surrounding buildings which were previously limited in height, the forty-six storey hotel will be an iconic landmark in the trendiest of districts.

The full-height glass facades will give purchasers panoramic views of many dazzling landmarks such as; the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building or , depending where you buy, the entire Manhattan skyline.

With the Trump name also comes a certain standard of luxury that cannot be found anywhere else.

Purchase a penthouse and you can expect a round -theclock chauffeured Rolls Royce (always handy if the Bentley’s in the garage), access to the on-site spa and library, twenty-four hour white glove room service and access to the again onsite world class restaurant.

Every room and penthouse comes fully equipped with the latest in technology and interior design (courtesy of David Rockwell) and top of the range security. Oh how the other half live! A hotel condominium provides a unique opportunity to own a unit in a hotel which can be rented out to guests when not occupied by the owner. Tipped by Prodigy International as “the perfect concept for Arab purchasers in NewYork,” buyers will have a strong foothold in ‘the capital of the world’ whilst being able to make a return on their investment when back in the UAE. Of the five penthouses prices range from a mere snip at $4 million to a reasonable $12 million including VAT (I hope).

On the project Mr Trump commented, “Last week I had the honour of globally launching Trump International Hotel & Tower Dubai, currently being built on the Palm Jumeirah. With the Trump Organisation’s continued growth throughout the Middle East, we thought it was only fitting to bring sales of our unique Trump SoHo penthouses to the UAE. Our penthouses are the most desirable places to stay in NewYork City, and will provide one of the most luxurious hotel experiences available anywhere in the world.”

Prodigy International’s President Rodrigo Nino added, “There is a great desire among sophisticated Arabic buyers to invest in Manhattan. The appetite for real estate in the Middle East is amazing. Arabic buyers already have a strong participation in the real estate markets of London and other capitals in Europe and want to consolidate their presence around the world by incorporating NewYork in their portfolio.We have many people on board such as attorneys, accountants and immigration specialists to make the purchasing of property in the US as easy as possible.”
