Property tycoon Donald Trump is gearing up for a spectacular Las Vegas battle - with his ex-wife Ivana Trump.

On Wednesday (13JUL05), Donald announced the start of construction on a new $500 million (GBP277 million) 64 storey condominium complex on the gambling haven's Las Vegas Strip.

And just a day later, it emerged that Ivana has hatched plans to build a 940 unit condominium tower in the same city called Ivana Las Vegas.

Sales on Ivana's project - which is still in the planning stages - will launch next month (AUG05).
