“My vision is to build Trump Vancouver as a new symbol for Vancouver that echoes the city as an international gateway city. I am so thrilled this has been implemented perfectly and industry experts from all around the world have recognized the beauty of this building,” said Joo Kim Tiah, principal of Holborn.
Construction started in 2012 and the tower was completed in February 2017.

The four categories are Best New Hotel Construction & Design Canada, Best Hotel Architecture Canada, Best Hotel Interior Canada and Best Residential High-rise Architecture Canada.
