Even though Vancouver is the bestestest city that ever there was, we’re yet to get our Trump Tower.
But if you want to get excited that we will be getting you Trump Tower you can rely on the Vancouver Sun to reprint the best press releases as news articles.
If you could buy a unit in the luxurious $360-million Trump International Hotel & Tower Vancouver, to be finished by fall 2016, you might never want to leave.
But if you have to, you will probably be able to go in style. Access to private jets, helicopters and Rolls-Royce limos for Trump buyers are probably going to figure as “residential amenities”, or perks.
Meanwhile there’s another Canadian City that already has it’s Trump Tower and yeah, that would be Toronto.
But the one in Toronto apparently doesn’t have that problem where people ‘might never want to leave’.
Apparently the problem there is sort of the opposite.
A unit in Toronto’s troubled Trump Hotel up for auction Sunday only received one bid — and below the minimum offer.
Kashif Khan, managing director of Toronto-based Ritchies Auctioneers, said the $550,000 bid will be taken to the owner of the unit.
“At that price, we can’t close the deal . . . but we will be presenting the offer to the seller,” he said. “We don’t know (if he will accept) — crazy things happen.”
The owner is a real estate broker who after seeing lots of similar units stagnate on MLS for months on end decided an auction would be a good move to unload the condo.
