Gilgo Beach murder suspect Rex Heuermann once worked as an architect for former President Donald Trump, a report said.
The Trump Organization hired Heuermann’s architectural firm, RH Architecture, for a plumbing job on the 17th floor of the Trump Building at 40 Wall St., according toan October 2018 filing with the New York City Department of Buildings.
The project at the crown jewel Art Deco-style building was projected to cost $205,017.00, the document states.
The filing names Heuermann as the applicant, while the Trump Organization’s VP of property management, Steve Lafiosca, is shown as the owner.
The Trump Organization did not immediately respond to The Post’s request for a comment on the project, which was first reported by TheRealDeal on Wednesday.
Heuermann, 59, was arrested near his office on July 13 and charged with two counts each of first- and second-degree murder in connection with the deaths of Melissa Barthelemy, 24, Amber Lynn Costello, 22, and Megan Waterman, 27.
All three women’s remains were discovered in the marshes along Ocean Parkway near Gilgo State Park in December 2010.
The Trump Organization released a statement late Wednesday afternoon saying Heuermann did not work with them.
“Mr. Heurmann [sic] never worked for The Trump Organization in any capacity. According to our records, he was hired by a third party commercial office tenant who vacated years ago, to perform minor architectural work in their individual space,” a spokesperson for the organization said.
The married father of two pleaded not guilty to all charges on Friday, and is on suicide watch at the Suffolk County Correctional Facility.
Trump scored 40 Wall St. from Kinson Properties in 1995 for less than $8 million, the New York Times reported.
Over the years, however, the wannabe mogul repeatedly claimed to have snagged the property for as little as $1 million, while also stating that the address was now worth up to $1 billion, TheRealDeal said in 2012.
More recently, 40 Wall St. made headlines as part of New York prosecutors’ investigation into the Trump Organization.
In 2012, the Trump Building was cited as being worth $527 million to lenders, but only $16.7 million to tax officials, the Washington Post reported.
In February of this year, the building was placed on a lender watchlist due to its rising maintenance costs and vacancy rate, according to Bloomberg.
