Trump Towers Istanbul are two conjoined towers in Şişli, Istanbul, Turkey. One of the towers is an office tower, and the other a residential tower, consisting of over 200 residences.[1] They are the first Trump Towers in Europe. American businessman Donald Trump licenses his name for use on the complex, but is not its owner. In December 2015 Reuters reported the owner's desire to dissociate the property from Trump's name after the U.S. presidential candidate declared that Muslims should be barred from entering the United States.[2]

The residential tower includes the only collective wine cellar in Turkey with a capacity of 16800 bottles. The cellar is built by Focus Wine Cellars.[3]

Among the buildings' prominent tenants is Iranian-born businessman Reza Zarrab.[4]
