The July 25 episode
of HGTV’s “Design Star” series challenged two teams of contestants to
each design a two-bedroom model apartments at The New Trump Plaza
Residences in Jersey City, and incorporate and repurpose some New York
City souvenirs into the finished product. Donald Trump Jr. was on hand
as a guest judge, as The Real Deal reported last week. In an exclusive interview with The Real Deal,
Trump described the building as being consistent with the Trump ideal
of “luxury.” The 55-story, 443-unit building, at 88 Morgan Street
between Washington and Green streets, is the tallest residential tower
in Jersey City. Trump said he was impressed with elegant and soft look
of one team’s design, incorporating souvenirs from Times Square and
Broadway. The other team disappointed Trump, who said their design
resembled a college dorm and that the implementation of the souvenirs
was ineffective. At the end of the episode, two contestants were
eliminated.
