Trump Place Fires The Donald: Mogul No Longer The Manager Of Pricey New York High Rise


Oh, the irony.

The condominium board at Trump Place has quietly fired the Trump Organization from managing the pricey high rise on the Hudson River that bears its name.

Sources told The Real Deal that the condominium board replaced Trump with AKAM Living Services, a management firm that has presided over luxury buildings at such high-end zip codes addresses as Central Park West, Fifth Avenue and West End Avenue.

AKAM confirmed to the Huffington Post that they have been retained to manage the property as of November 1st.

The move came as a surprise to the Trump organization, according to the real estate blog.

“We certainly would have been willing to discuss the concerns of the board if they had contacted us,” Sonja Talesnik, general counsel for the Trump Organization, told The Real Deal. “They gave us no indication that they were looking to change managing agents.”

But Anna Fishbeyn, vice president of the Trump Place board, said the change was a long time in coming.

“We’ve been waiting for their services to improve for years,” Fishbeyn told the Huffington Post. “And when they didn’t, we started investigating other services.”


With close to 300 apartments, at an average price of $1,326 per square foot , the move is sure to sting the pride of the billionaire real estate mogul and reality television star famous for his catch phrase, “You’re fired.”
