“We’re looking to have this be something very, very special,” Trump told reporters. "I believe it’s going to be a fantastic success. I love Vancouver and the people who live here. We had another opportunity in Vancouver and this is the one we chose. And we’re going to make it the best.”
The exterior of the 58-storey building will feature a twisting Arthur Erickson design.
