(CNN) — The New York City Department of Buildings confirmed Wednesday that it is investigating the use of the Trump Tower atrium for campaign events, which may violate an agreement Donald Trump made to keep parts [of] the building open to the public when he built the landmark.
Department spokesman Joe Soldevere told CNN that the "Department of Building's enforcement unit is investigating whether the atrium was improperly closed to the public."
Soldevere said the probe was sparked by Tuesday's press conference at Trump Tower. Reuters first reported the investigation by the Department of Buildings.
