Trump Tower is one of President Donald Trump's most iconic properties.

The glittering skyscraper was built in 1983 " as a world famous testament of Mr. Trump's grand vision " and displayed his name on one of the most iconic streets in New York City.

The tower was once known as a glamorous icon of the city's skyline that earned Trump $300 million in condo sales and housed celebrities. But in the last few years, it has become more closely associated with federal investigations into Trump's campaign and fiery protests.

Last week, Bloomberg reported that the tension has taken its toll on the tower, as it's struggling to hold on to its tenants. See inside the tower's amenities for its visitors, public and high-profile alike.

Trump Tower is a skyscraper on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan.

The tower was completed in 1984 after Trump, then a rising real estate mogul, replaced an 11-story building, vowing to build the city's first super-luxury high-rise property with high-end retail shops, offices, and residences.

Though the building was advertised to be 68 floors, city records show it is only 58. Trump counted the lobby and shops as 10 extra floors, starting the residential units on what he called the 30th floor.

The building was one of the earliest monuments to Trump's desire for a massive real estate empire, which would be followed by numerous hotels and golf courses that bore his name.

Since then, the tower's shops have become active monuments to Trump's brand, offering food and merchandise under the famous last name.

It's not clear why she bought the unit, which is one of the smaller spaces in the tower, and especially since she's taken up permanent residence in Washington, DC, it remains a mystery.

Despite the building's glamorous origins, a May 2019 report said the building's occupancy rate has plunged over the last seven years to 83% from 99%, giving it a vacancy rate that's about twice Manhattan's average.
