“Trump International Hotel & Tower Vancouver will become a new symbol for Vancouver and will solidify the city’s arrival on the international stage,” said Joo Kim Tiah, CEO and president of Holborn Group and deputy CEO of TA Global Bhd., the developer of Trump International Hotel & Tower Vancouver. “The Trump brand is very well-respected and is synonymous with luxury real estate and hospitality. I’m pleased to have a strong relationship with Don, Jr., Ivanka and Eric and look forward to carrying on the entrepreneurial legacy that our parents have begun. Our shared vision and a work ethic that prides itself on diligence and attention to detail will result in a development that is cutting-edge, and matches Vancouver’s vibrant personality.”
“We are thrilled to be bringing the Trump flag to Vancouver as it has become a world-class city in its own right,” added Donald J. Trump. “When looking at expanding our portfolio, we felt this was a market that held great potential for our brand. As we continue to grow globally, our goal is align ourselves with the best opportunities – and we know the Trump International Hotel & Tower Vancouver will be like no other hotel and residential offering.”
Trump International Hotel & Tower Vancouver is the latest project to further contribute to the revitalization of the West Georgia corridor. Within four years of the hotel opening, it is expected that visitors to Vancouver will occupy 40,726 room nights per year. In addition to spinoff consultation contracts, the project has created the equivalent of 170 full-time jobs during the construction phase, and will generate 300 full-time positions upon opening.
The original twisting design of the tower maximizes the window features and views in every suite, making each unit distinctive, with no two views exactly alike. Attention to detail and personalized service will further differentiate the development. Residences will range from 644 to 2,117 square feet with the penthouses between 3,500 and 4,400 square feet.
Sales for the residential suites will begin in October 2013 with project completion expected in summer 2016.
