Argentinian President Mauricio Macri and Elie Hirschfeld were partners in the redevelopment of Riverside South
“Mauricio was a visionary then and remains so today,” said. “We turned that property around together. He was a very popular and successful businessman and those traits have served him well in his current status as statesman.”
“My offices at the time were located in Trump Tower. I was happy to be able to introduce him to Donald.”
Trump later purchased the Macri share of the development in 1985 and Hirschfeld Properties finished the project with the future president.
“And it all started right here in New York.”
