Did any of you know that Trump is building a high rise

in downtown Vancouver, BC, Canada. It is a massive high rise, I had no idea even though I live here. After going to the Pride Parade and heading to the Skytrain, there is this massive high rise with Trump's name on it. I had no idea that he was setting up shop here in BC. I took a picture but for some reason I cannot link it on here, it is a huge tower.

The Pride Parade was awesome. Each year it seems to attract more sponsors and people who come out to support the event. I wanted beads but they were in short supply, just kidding, just wanted to inject something comical. Oh, and Justin was there too, he looks much younger in person than in pictures.

2. Ghost, am serious, the building is huge, I wish I could post a pic!

Actually, I took one pic of the high rise and then there is an extension which I took with trump's name on it, it was captioned the presentation centre. I will try to figure out how to post the two pics on here.

3. Ugh, completely out of scale

and built to suck in billionaire investors who will let it sit empty in the hope it appreciates in price. Here it is: http://www.mikestewart.ca/trump-tower-vancouver-hotel-in-vancouvers-coal-harbour-floor-plans-and-pricing-to-come?gclid=CK7k9oaujMcCFQoPaQodMEUKQg







Too bad the Chinese bubble is bursting. There goes half his market.

4. That was the picture I was trying to capture, you beat me to it.

We have tons of condos in downtown Vancouver which are bought by Chinese and Japanese but they are empty. A Saudi prince just bought a penthouse for $55 million in downtown Vancouver, not even sure how often he comes to Vancouver.

5. He's got an abomination going up in Mumbai too

An 80-story monstrosity (the tallest building in Mumbai now is 61 stories) in the middle of Worli. It's an eyesore in the making.
