The design of the building includes, from the ground up, retail space, a parking garage, a hotel and condominiums. The 339-room hotel opened for business with limited accommodations and services on January 30, 2008, then full accommodation and services on April 28. A restaurant on the 16th floor, Sixteen, opened in early 2008. The skyscraper was built by Bovis Lend Lease.

Trump announced in 2001 that the skyscraper would become the tallest building in the world. However, after the September 11 attacks that same year, the architects scaled back the building’s plans, and its design underwent several revisions.

When topped out in 2009, it became the second-tallest building in the U.S. It surpassed the city’s John Hancock Center as the building with the highest residence (apartment or condo) in the world, and briefly held this title until the completion of the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, UAE.

The building topped out in late 2008 and construction was completed in 2009. The tower design incorporates three setback features to provide visual continuity with the surrounding skyline, each reflecting the height of a nearby building. The first setback, on the east side of the building, aligns with the cornice line of the Wrigley Building to the east; the second, on the west side, aligns with River Plaza to the north and with the Marina City Towers to the west.
