Trump-Branded New York Building Looks to Remove ex-President's Name

(Bloomberg) -- Donald Trump’s name is emblazoned on buildings across Manhattan, usually spelled out in large gold lettering. Residents at one of those buildings would like to change that.

A group of owners at Trump Palace has met to discuss removing the former president’s name from the hulking condominium tower on the Upper East Side, according to one resident, who asked not to be identified because the discussions are private. The building manager is now looking into the possibility of doing just that, said Michael Schoeman, who lives in the tower.

They wouldn’t be the first to go that route. Trump SoHo, for example, rebranded as the Dominick in 2017. After Trump was elected, a handful of buildings on the Upper West Side took down the large “Trump Place” signs that hung over their entrances. Trump Plaza, a co-op eight blocks south of Trump Palace, has long considered doing the same.

Adam Leitman Bailey, a New York real estate attorney, said he was contacted by residents at Trump Plaza, among others, soon after Trump’s 2016 presidential bid to see about stripping his name from the building.

2. Seems like any Trump-branded building would need to do that or be sold.

Remove the Trump name for revenue. Sell the building at a premium if not (because the new owner can take down the name after buying).

3. And just think what's going to happen with his hotels and golf resorts.

That brand is in the garbage.
