Luxury condo tower reborn in downtown Vancouver

A luxury condominium and hotel project planned for Vancouver’s West Georgia Street and cancelled during the recession is back on track, CBC News has learned.

Construction stopped suddenly in October 2008, leaving a gaping hole behind the hoardings between Thurlow and Bute streets. But buyers who’d bought did get their money back.

The 60-storey building, originally called the Ritz-Carlton, will now have a new name and a new configuration, but the design that twists 45 degrees from top to bottom will remain the same.

The Holborn Group, which is developing the project, is expected to get a permit by the end of the week that will allow the company to start building again.

But with the passage of time and a tighter economy, the market has dictated changes and although the building will still be on the high end, the building have been tamped down.

“Where the consumer is focusing is, ‘What is the end price and what are the amenities that come with it,’" said Jennifer Podmore Russell of Deloitte Touche.

In this case, less means more.

The number of condos goes from 163 to 290 and hotel rooms increase from 127 to 187.

Lowering the ceiling heights will help squeeze in eight more floors, but increasing the building's overall height by just five metres.

Prices are expected to be in the $1,500-per-square-foot range, down from $2,300 earlier.

Veteran real estate marketer Bob Rennie says even today's luxury buyers are more cautious.

"It's a much more conservative buyer out there,” Rennie said. “They want certainty."

Construction is expected to resume by the end of April, with sales tentatively scheduled to begin by the end of the year.

VANCOUVER l The Residences (Trump Tower) l ??? l ??? l 60fl l Pro

Quote:
U.S. business magnate Donald Trump and his family were in Vancouver on Wednesday to announce the details of an exclusive deal to build the city's first Trump Tower, complete with a luxury hotel run by the famous family.

Trump, along with sons Donald and Eric, and daughter Ivanka, licensed the Trump brand to Vancouver developers Holborn and TA Global for the 63-storey tower on West Georgia Street designed by Arthur-Erickson.

Trump said his company will design the interior of the hotel and operate it. The luxury development will include 218 residences on the upper floors and a 147-room hotel on the lower floors, complete with Vancouver's first pool bar nightclub, and a 1927 Palm Beach-themed spa by Ivanka Trump.

"When looking at expanding our portfolio, we felt this was a market that held great potential for our brand," said Trump.

"As we continue to grow globally, our goal is align ourselves with the best opportunities — and we know the Trump International Hotel and Tower Vancouver will be like no other hotel and residential offering," said the real estate mogul and reality TV star.

"I love Vancouver. I have had so much experience with Vancouver and with people who live here. You don't even realize how important it is in terms of a destination and also your people they go to New York, they go all over the world and they speak so highly," he added.

Residences in the tower are due to go on sale in October and the project is expected to be completed by 2016, making Vancouver's the second Trump Tower in Canada after Toronto.

[snip]

When the project was originally launched before the global economic meltdown, the 60-storey tower, which will twist 45 degrees as it rises, was to feature a high-end Ritz-Carlton hotel on the lower floors.

Another 123 luxury condos were planned for the upper floors, priced between $2.5 million and $10 million, with the penthouse priced at $28 million.

Tall and slender, Trumps towers look pretty good.
