$360-million mixed-use development will transform city's skyline
VANCOUVER, June 19, 2013 /CNW/ - Holborn Group and TA Global Bhd. today confirmed plans to welcome the city's first Trump development, Trump International Hotel & Tower Vancouver®. Situated on Georgia Street in Downtown Vancouver's Coal Harbour, the premium $360-million Arthur Erickson-designed tower will include a world-class hotel and residences.
In addition to 147 guest rooms, the luxury hotel will include a Champagne lounge, signature restaurant, Trump Spa, and banquet and conference centre. 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 (63 storeys).
"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 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.
Donald Trump Jr. said, "In adding Trump International Hotel & Tower Vancouver to our portfolio we continue our global expansion and solidify our presence in Canada, which also includes Trump International Hotel & Tower Toronto. The opportunity to work with Holborn is immensely exciting and we are eager to move forward with this project, one we are confident will be a destination for travellers worldwide and a luxurious place to call home for residents of Vancouver."
Trump International Hotel & Tower Vancouver will feature Canada's first Mar-a-Lago Spa by Ivanka Trump, a new boutique spa brand that will reflect the joie de vivre of the timeless 1927 Palm Beach property. The design of the spa will be influenced by the iconic club's sophisticated and elegant style, seamlessly blending classic and Nouveau. Ivanka Trump will personally select the spa's luxurious products and treatments.
As part of the Trump Hotel Collection, the Trump International Hotel & Tower Vancouver will offer guests their own Trump Attaché. This dedicated department provides personalized attention by meticulously recording guests' preferences and updating them with each visit. Attaché services range from making dining suggestions and booking reservations to having pets walked and fed to arranging a romantic picnic in the park - nothing is off limits.
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.
