Trump International Hotel & Tower Vancouver has been confirmed as Trump’s first development in the city. The $360-million Arthur Erickson-designed tower will include a world-class hotel and residences.
The 147-room luxury hotel will include a Champagne lounge, signature restaurant, Trump Spa, and banquet and conference center.
It will also be home to Vancouver’s first pool bar nightclub. Above the hotel will be 218 stylish residences, offering residents spectacular views of the North Shore and beyond. When completed, the twisting tower will stand at 616 feet (57 stories).
“Trump International Hotel & Tower Vancouver will become a new symbol for Vancouver and will solidify the city’s arrival on the international stage,” commented Joo Kim Tiah, CEO and president of Holborn Group, 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.” Added Kim Tiah.
Within four years of the hotel opening, it is expected that visitors to Vancouver will occupy 40,726 room nights per year.
Trump Hotels revealed the project has created the equivalent of 170 full-time jobs during the construction phase, and will generate 300 full-time positions upon opening.
Sales for the residential suites will begin in October 2013 with project completion expected in Summer 2016.
