Trump International Hotel and Tower® Vancouver Celebrates Record Residential Sales and Recruitment Achievements As It Ramps Up Toward Opening
Trump International Hotel and Tower® Vancouver, opening later this year, is poised for success as it celebrates both record-breaking residential sales as well as its highly successful employee recruitment campaign. The highly anticipated project in Vancouver is expected to add more than 300 jobs to the local economy and has so far received close to 10,000 applications to work at the property.
“Vancouver has long been regarded as a top city for livability and quality of life and Trump Vancouver will embody the incredible urban environment and hospitality of Vancouver. We have assembled a world-class team that will deliver an extraordinary luxury hospitality experience for which Trump properties are known for,” said Donald Trump Jr., executive vice president of The Trump Organization. “We are extremely proud of these milestones as we power ahead towards the opening of this incredible hotel. Congratulations to Mr. Joo Kim Tiah and his entire team, we couldn’t be more proud of the success that this remarkable project has achieved prior to its opening.”
Since the project was announced, residences at Trump Vancouver have sold at a higher price-per-square-foot than any other property in Canada. Averaging $1,610 per square foot, the current 214 units are completely sold out, with the sub-penthouse closing for $6.74 million. Three exclusive top-floor penthouses – which have captured the attention of the region’s most prominent residents as well as international buyers – will go on the market early next year.
“It has been extraordinary to lead this record-setting team,” said Joo Kim Tiah, principal of Holborn Group, the joint developer with TA Global Bhd. of Trump Vancouver. “Trump Vancouver has set a new benchmark for luxury living in Canada, and it will be like no other hotel and residential offering in the city.”
Trump Vancouver is scheduled to open in late summer 2016. Soaring 616 feet and 63 stories, it will take its place as the second tallest building on the city skyline and redefine the luxury market.
“We are thrilled that so many job candidates from across the country recognize this unique opportunity to work at Trump’s first Western Canada property,” said Philipp Posch, general manager of Trump International Hotel and Tower® Vancouver.
“Putting design, facilities and amenities to one side, much of the Trump Hotels experience is delivered through its people. Finding suitable talents to deliver on the experience is crucial and our number priority,” added Posch.
Located on West Georgia Street, the breathtaking hotel will feature Vancouver’s first pool bar nightclub, Drai’s Vancouver; the latest incarnation of the Michelin-starred restaurant Mott 32; as well as an exclusive Champagne Bar showcasing the finest champagne vintages. Trump Vancouver features a unique “twist” design created by famed architect Arthur Erickson that maximizes the window exposure and views in each and every room. Residents of the property will also have preferred access to hotel amenities including The Spa at Trump.
Trump Vancouver was named Canada’s #1 real estate development by Elite Traveler magazine, and it is the only Canadian development ranked among the Top 100 Developments in the World. For more information, please clickhere.
