See inside Donald Trump’s amazing gold plated private Boeing passenger jet

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ywSaukw9GZI

The plane has room for 43 passengers and can fly at speeds of more than 500mph,This is the amazing passenger jet that Donald Trump hopes will fly him to the White House.
The outspoken businessman will be jetting across the United States as his campaign to become President kicks into gear.
While politicians in the UK often have to jump in campaign buses or grab a train, Donald Trump will be whisked around in complete luxury.
Having bought the Boeing 757-200 in 2011, Trump has seemingly splashed out a small fortune on kitting the jet out in with the latest technology and finest decor.
With a top speed of more than 500mph and room for 43 passengers, the jet is sure to be put to good use when the billionaire hits the campaign trails.
Powered by Rolls Royce engines, ‘Trump Force One’ has 24-carat gold plated seat belts “as well as everything else”.
In his bedroom, Trump has fin wood panelling, “yards and yards of elegant silk” and pillows embroidered with his family crest.
The video lounge has a 57-inch screen and sound system similar to a “top Hollywood screening room”.
While his campaign for the oval office appears to be grounded, the same cannot be said for Trump’s travel plans.

Visionnaire: a new flagship store in Dubai

Vissionaire1

First Flagship Vissionaire Store in Dubai

First flagship store in Dubai for Visionnaire, which lands with a 670 sqm showroom at Jumeirah First, Beach Road(near Four Season Hotel), one of the most exclusive districts of the capital city.

The area, a penthouse on the beach, is organized on two levels and alternates classical codes, related to the luxury tradition, to more contemporary codes which absorb the atmosphere of the city.
The setting follows the linguistic codes of the new furniture collection, inspired to a dandyism with gothic victorian atmospheres: luxury sofas for conversation, lacquered wood, precious chandeliers, a selection of contemporary art works and a wide outdoor collection make the Dubai showroom the real “place-to-go” of the metropolis for all those architects and interior decorators who search for “one of a kind” solutions. Luxury, style and quality: these are the founding values of Visionnaire, brand that, today more than ever, goes beyond a simple furnishing proposal.

Tailor-made projects, based on the customers’ needs, make Visionnaire the ideal partner both for private living projects and for luxury contract proposals. Thanks to this approach, Visionnaire has the opportunity of expanding
all over the world in the name of a new way of making furniture, not strictly connected to the product, but to a life philosophy.

The New Biggest Mansion in Los Angeles Will Ask $500 Million

by Bianca Barragan at

The biggest house in Los Angeles has swollen even larger in size and is getting a pretty big ego now too. Bloomberg reports that the finished project will measure more than 100,000 square feet, making it bigger than the infamously unfinished Versailles estate in Florida. The spread is being developed on spec, naturally, and will feature a 74,000-square-foot main residence with a 5,000-square-foot master bedroom, a 30-car garage, a “Monaco-style casino,” and three smaller houses spread across four acres. “The house will have almost every amenity available in the world,” prolific spec house developer Nile Niami says about his latest project. How much will every amenity available in the world cost? $500 million.

If all that doesn’t seem ridiculous enough, don’t worry: there will also be tons of wasted water. One pool is so chintzy; everyone who’s anyone with $500 million has to have four pools these days, and so this place will of course, including one in the basement and another on the second level of the mansion, according to construction permits. As it stands, the landscaping will require “about 20,000 square feet of grass” in the middle of a devastating statewide drought that has provoked mandatory water cutbacks. The mansion’s designer, Paul McClean, says “There a lot of things in the house that will help to preserve water. But those are things that correspond with luxury houses, and I can’t tell you that it’s a green and energy-efficient house.” Originally, plans called for five pools, so maybe that’s what passes for high-end conservation—one less pool than you actually want.

Does the $500-million asking price seem unreal? It is. The LA Business Journal estimated last year that this project would ask “in the $150 million-plus range.” Jonathan Miller, president of appraiser Miller Samuel Inc. (and Curbed contributor), tells Bloomberg “I’m skeptical. My first reaction is laughter. But we’re in this perpetual state of surprise as new thresholds are broken.” If it sells for even half of that, though, it will still be the most expensive sale in the US: the current record holder, an East Hampton estate owned by a hedge fund guy, sold last year for $147 million. (Not too far away from Bel Air, in Beverly Hills, the tacky Palazzo di Amore is waiting patiently for someone to pay $195 million.)

Niami, also a movie producer, is a seasoned spec builder. Last year he sold a humble 30,000-square-foot estate with a dental office in the basement and a 17,000-square-foot mansion in Holmby Hills with an underwater tunnel (Diddy bought that one). Niami is currently “pouring concrete” on his Bel Air record-setter, and expects to be working for about 20 more months on the enormous compound.

Most expensive penthouse of N.York sold for $ 100 million (photos)

One57a

The real estate market in America has skyrocketed. Best proof is the penthouse on One57 skyscraper located in the Midtown area of Manhattan, which was sold for $100.5 million, making it the most expensive apartment ever sold in New York.

The penthouse is located at 1,004 feet and particularly in the 89th and 90th floor. It has an area of 11,000 square feet and includes six bedrooms, a steam room, a library, and an indoor cinema. Residents will also have access to the amenities of the hotel Park Hyatt, which occupies the first 39 floors of the building.

However, the penthouse at One57 is not the only sought, until recently, buyer. The tower 520 Park Avenue includes a penthouse for sale for over $130 million; the price is expected to increase further.
