In 1985, Donald Trump proposed building Television City with headquarters for NBC along with television studios. The plan involved 16,500,000 square feet (1,530,000 m2) of residential, retail, office, and studio construction. (The Television City name also infringed on CBS's registered trademark for their Los Angeles facility.)
The centerpiece of the project, designed by Helmut Jahn, was to be a 152-story tower, the "World's Tallest Building."
The project generated fierce opposition and NBC, fearing delays leading to higher costs, eventually negotiated to continue broadcasting from Rockefeller Center. At this point the project was redesigned by Alexander Cooper, renamed Trump City, and downsized slightly to 14,500,000 square feet (1,350,000 m2), but that failed to satisfy the critics.
