Trump Towers Istanbul are two conjoined towers in Şişli, Istanbul, Turkey. One of the towers is an office tower, and the other a residential tower, consisting of over 200 residences.[4] The complex also holds a shopping mall with some 80 shops and a multiplex cinema. They are the first Trump Towers built on the European continent.[2] The property developer is Turkish billionaire Aydın Doğan, in a license-partnership with American businessman (later U.S. President) Donald Trump. His daughter Ivanka Trump took part in the promotion and sales of the residences in 2007,[5] 2008[6] and 2009,[5][7] and attended the April 2012 launch with her father Donald Trump and Turkish Prime Minister (later President) Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.[1][8] Many businesses based in Europe and the Middle East occupy the complex, which was designed by Austrian architect Brigitte Weber.[2][3]
