Ivanka Trump, the daughter of real estate mogul and general celebrity busybody Donald Trump, turns 32 today.
She works for her dad as executive vice president of development and acquisitions at the Trump Organization. And if that wasn’t enough real estate in her life, she married real estate developer Jared Kushner, who owns Kushner Properties with his father, Charles. (Of course, she's also worn many other hats professionally: She’s a former model, a writer and principal of Ivanka Trump Fine Jewelry, and she sells all kinds or products through the Ivanka Trump Lifestyle Collection including fragrances, shoes, handbags, glasses and clothing.)
Kushner Properties owns the Puck Building, a historic New York City landmark in the hip Soho neighborhood that features two gilded statues of the mischievous character Puck in Shakespeare’s "Midsummer Night’s Dream."
Trump’s husband is creating a retail and residential center out of the building, which had been used as office or academic space for some time. His big project is crafting five loft-style penthouses on the eighth and ninth floors of the building and adding one more loft to the roof. According to the New York Times, Trump helped her husband design the closet spaces and baths.
The couple love the project so much that they plan to move—along with their children, 2-year-old daughter Arabella Rose and newborn Joseph Frederick—from their penthouse at the Trump Park Avenue to the Puck sometime next year, the Times reported.
Though the penthouses are officially still unfinished, they are apparently unofficially showing (Leonardo DiCaprio allegedly checked one out). According to real estate consultancy Knight Frank, the penthouses range from about 5,000 to 7,000 square feet and will come with a private entrance and a 24-hour concierge. The word on the street is that they’ll be going for more than $20 million, a price tag that Trump and her husband could surely afford.
