Donald Trump has set the location of his next Trump Towers in Rio de Janeiro with plans to build a pair of 38 story towers in the port zone. Along with Trump there are other investors who intend to clean up and set a wealthy environment in the city as it prepares to host the 2016 Olympic Games.

RIO DE JANEIRO – U.S. magnate Donald Trump will invest in the construction of a residential and office complex in the run-down port zone of Brazil’s second-largest city, his business conglomerate announced Tuesday.


The Trump Towers Rio, each 38 stories high, will have floor space totaling 332,000 square meters (3.5 million square feet).
