Last week, developers Holborn Group and TA Global Group teamed with Trump Hotel Collection to announce the arrival of Trump International Hotel & Tower Vancouver. The project, which was originally designed for The Ritz-Carlton, was put on hold in 2009 when the financial crisis hit, but has since been picked back up in an effort to make room for the city’s swanky new hotel.
Located in downtown Vancouver’s Coal Harbour area, Trump International Hotel & Tower Vancouver is the latest project in the ongoing revitalization of the West Georgia corridor. In fact, the construction has created the equivalent of 170 full-time jobs, and another 300 full-time opportunities are expected to come about when the hotel opens. It’s the next step in Trump’s growing Canadian presence, joining Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star Trump International Hotel & Tower Toronto.
The $342 million, Arthur Erickson-designed tower will feature 147 guest rooms with 218 luxury residences on the higher floors. One of the many unique aspects of the new building is its design; it twists at a 45-degree angle as it rises. Not only is it visually appealing from the ground, but it also allows rooms and views to be distinct.
It wouldn’t be Trump if there weren’t a few firsts to claim with this property. Trump International Hotel & Tower Vancouver will be home to the city’s first pool bar nightclub, as well as Canada’s debut Mar-a-Lago Spa by Ivanka Trump. The stylish entrepreneur will personally select all of the products and treatments her namesake establishment will offer.
Other features of the upcoming hotel are set to include a champagne lounge, signature restaurant and a banquet and conference center. Like the rest of the Trump properties, this one will allow guests access to the Trump Attaché program, which acts as a personal concierge.
The 63-story, 616-foot tower is set to open in mid-2016, along with the new Trump International Hotel Washington, D.C.
