Celebrity billionaire Donald Trump will lend his name to a $360 million, 63-storey hotel and residential tower in downtown Vancouver.

The man himself was in Vancouver for Wednesday’s announcement.

“We are thrilled to be bringing the Trump flag to Vancouver as it has become a world-class city in its own right,” Trump said at a press conference. “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.”

The 63-storey, twisting tower is being developed by Holborn Group and TA Global Bhd.

The Georgia Street tower, at the Bute Street intersection, will include 218 residential suites and 147-room luxury hotel. The hotel will feature a pool bar, restaurant, champagne lounge, Trump Spa, banquet room and conference centre.

“Trump International Hotel & Tower Vancouver will become a new symbol for Vancouver and will solidify the city’s arrival on the international stage,” said Holborn Group CEO Joo Kim Tiah. “The Trump brand is very well respected and is synonymous with luxury real estate and hospitality.”

The tower’s twisting design will give each suite a distinctive view of the city. Residences will range from 644 to 2,117 square feet, and with the penthouses between 3,500 and 4,400 square feet. Sales will open in October.

The project is expected to be completed by the summer 2016. For information, visit www.TrumpVancouver.com.
