VANCOUVER, BC—Holborn Group and TA Global confirmed plans to add this city’s first Trump development, the $360 million Trump International Hotel & Tower Vancouver, situated on Georgia St.
The Arthur Erickson-designed tower will include 218 residences and a hotel featuring 147 guestrooms, a Champagne lounge, signature restaurant, Trump Spa, and banquet and conference center. It also will include Vancouver’s first pool bar nightclub.
“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, president/CEO of Holborn Group and deputy CEO of TA Global Bhd., the developer of Trump International Hotel & Tower Vancouver.
“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 in a statement. “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 to align ourselves with the best opportunities..."
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 1927 Palm Beach property. The design of the spa will be influenced by the iconic club’s sophisticated and elegant style, blending classic and Nouveau aspects. Ivanka Trump will select the spa’s 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 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 picnic in the park.
Project completion is expected in summer 2016.
The hotel will join sister property Trump International Hotel & Tower Toronto.
