Earlier view, from the same location in April 2006, showing the foundation of the Trump Tower. The Wynn Encore Hotel
was not yet rising, though it can be seen (in photo above) almost completed and ready for its November 2008 opening.

September 2007 view of the Trump sales office (200 yards east of the tower) and the Wynn Las Vegas Resort at the
intersection of the Strip and Mel Torme Way.

Trump Tower's location is located in what is now considered the new heart of the Las Vegas Strip and the most modern area
of Las Vegas, with a newly expanded and re-modeled Fashion Show Mall, the Wynn Project and upcoming Plaza Hotel.

The strategic location of the Trump Tower (set-back near Dean Martin Drive) makes it the central
focal point of the south and mid Strip. The views, from the southside of the tower, look directly down
Las Vegas Blvd and beyond Mandalay Bay. Trump Tower is now the tallest and most direct landmark for
traffic heading into the central part of the Strip - up to the diagonal curve near Mirage and Venetian.

Photography by Erik Wunstell 2007

Aerial photo of the Las Vegas Strip (seen in red) shows the diagonal turn of the boulevard near the Mirage and Venetian.
The location of Trump Tower (blue dot) being set-back roughly 250 yards from the North Strip makes the building line-up
perfectly (see yellow line) to become the dominant landmark for incoming traffic on the South and Mid-Strip.
