Trump Tower Vancouver to be city’s second tallest skyscraper

I'm appalled that such a beautiful building is going to be associated by that foul mouth oaf and douchebag.

I wonder how earthquake-proof it is. Cascadia is coming.

It is important to note that Donald Trump is not investing in the tower, he is merely selling his Trump brand to the developer.


People pay for that? :blink: I thought it be the other way around, and he would have to do the paying to have anything associated with him.

What's wrong with that building? Sure Trumps name may be on it but it's a slick looking building.

If you look carefully, you can see the regular entrance and the entrance for "colored" folks....

Orland Kurtenbach and Dennis Kearns had just been torched 8-1 by the Habs, but they still took time to come out to meet us, some fellow BC boys who were playing hockey in Montreal. THAT"S what being a Canuck is!

I dunno.... "heading to the Ritz-Carlton for dinner/drinks" does sound a bit better than "heading down to the Trump Towers..."

Trump Towers sounds like a s****y Rollercoaster Tycoon amusement park ride that causes guests to commit suicide after riding.

The Ritz-Carlton sounds like Carlton Banks doing his dance with a ritz cracker in his mouth (or hand?), and thus much cooler.
