Trump Tower Punta del Este is a 26-story apartment tower named after Donald Trump under construction in Punta del Este, Uruguay. The project was announced in November 2012, and YY Development Group began construction in January 2014. The project is overseen by Trump's son, Eric Trump. It was originally scheduled for completion in 2016 but has been postponed to late 2020; construction is being held up by legal and funding issues.
Trump Tower Punta del Este was announced by Donald Trump at his Manhattan Trump Tower on November 28, 2012. It would be the first South American project for Trump's recently formed brokerage firm, Trump International Realty. Trump had previously discussed possible projects for South America, including Brazil, but such projects had never materialized up to that time.
