40 Wall Street, also known as the Trump Building, is a 71-story, 927-foot-tall neo-Gothic skyscraper between Nassau Street and William Street in the Financial District of Manhattan, New York City. Erected in 1929-1930 as the headquarters of the Manhattan Company, the building was originally known as the Bank of Manhattan Trust Building, and also as the Manhattan Company Building, until its founding tenant merged to form the Chase Manhattan Bank. It was designed by H. Craig Severance with Yasuo Matsui and Shreve & Lamb.
Plans for 40 Wall Street were revealed in April 1929, with the Manhattan Company as the primary tenant. The structure was completed in May 1930 after 11 months of construction. 40 Wall Street and the Chrysler Building were competing for the distinction of "world's tallest building" at the time of both buildings' construction, leading to several modifications in plans, though the Chrysler Building ultimately emerged as the world's tallest building.
