LAS VEGAS (AP) - Donald Trump says he'll wait to build a second
high-rise to augment his new gold-plated Trump International Hotel
& Tower on the Las Vegas Strip.
At a ribbon-cutting this morning, Trump said he wants to close sales on all the condo and hotel units in his first 64-story building before breaking ground on another.
Trump executives, civic officials and Miss Universe Riyo Mori joined The Donald for the ceremony at the 645-foot tower next to the Fashion Show Mall. It was held Friday because Trump was in town now for his Miss USA pageant.
The tower opened March 31, at a cost of $1.2 billion. It has 1,200 luxury suites, and distinctive gold windows.
It doesn't have a casino, but it features a signature restaurant called DJT, a heated outdoor pool and 2,400 square feet of meeting space.
