Ever heard of a guy called Donald Trump? Yes, I’m talking about the same guy whoyou see on TV every week saying, “You’re fired” on this little show called “theApprentice.” Ever wonder how he got so wealthy? Let me tell you how he came tobe known as one of the world’s wealthiest men.Donald Trump joined his father’s real estate business right after he graduated fromWharton School. His father was his mentor and it did not take him much time todecide that this was exactly the line of work he wanted to be in. Ever since hemastered the art of investing in all the right real estate projects, his fortune has onlygrown. The only setback came in the late 1980s and spanned close to a decadebecause of some bad expansion plans and creditor bailouts. His divorce with histhen wife Ivana Trump only added to this. However, ever since he revived himself from that bad patch, it has been smooth sailing. In his father’s words, “everythingDonald touched seemed to turn into gold”. The list of real estate that the Trump Organization has owned over the years hasbeen quite huge. Some of the most impressive buildings on the New York skylinehave been developed by him. Some of these buildings include:
 Trump World Tower: 845 United Nations Plaza, New York, NY. It is valued at$290 million.
 Trump Tower: 725 Fifth Ave, New York, NY 10022: Trump owns the retail andoffice space on the lower half of this building. It is valued at $288 million.
Personal Residence: Trump Tower: top 3 floors of Trump Tower withapproximately 30,000 square feet (3,000 m²) of space; detailed inbronze, gold, and marble. Worth as much as $50 million, it is one of themost valuable apartments in New York City.

555 California Street, formerly the Bank of America Center, in San Francisco:When Trump was forced to sell a stake in the rail yards on Manhattan's WestSide, the Asian group to which he sold then sold much of the site for $1.76billion. They then reinvested the rest of the money, via a tax-free exchange,into two office buildings: 1290 Avenue of the Americas in Manhattan and 555California Street in San Francisco (The Group has since sold their stake toVornado Realty Trust). Trump ended up owning 30% of the two buildings.Based on the recent sales price, Trump's stake is valued at $540 million.
 The Trump Building at 40 Wall Street: Trump bought and renovated thisbuilding for about $35 million in 1996. Although Trump claims it is worth $400million, New York tax assessors value it at only $90 million. Mr. Trump hastaken out a $145 million mortgage on this property to use for otherinvestments.
values the property at $260 million.
