Trump's Name Is Removed From Another New York Building

Trump's Name Is Removed From Another New York Building

The residents of a Manhattan condominium called "Trump Place" have voted to remove the president's name from the tower's facade, the latest in a string of properties that have distanced themselves from the Trump brand since Election Day 2016.

On Thursday, workers began ridding the 46-story tower of the massive gold letters spelling out TRUMP PLACE on the building's east and west-facing facades. The agreement required that the condo maintain the building on par with "superluxury condominiums", but it did not mention any requirement that the Trump name remain in perpetuity.In May, the judge ruled in favor of the condo owners, saying that the agreement does not require owners "to use the identification "Trump' on the facade of the premises". The others included three other "Trump Place" buildings in the same complex in NY, plus hotels in Toronto, Panama, and the SoHo neighborhood of NY.

While the tower's legal name will not be affected, the building will now be known as 200 Riverside Boulevard instead of Trump Place. A year ago the name was abandoned by the former Trump SoHo condo hotel, and three buildings near 200 Riverside have already shed their Trump Place signage. The condo board estimates the job will cost about $23,000. Trump lawyers said the board lacked standing because not all directors voted and commercial tenants were not consulted.

Pope is conveyed invite from North Korea, signals he will consider it
The Vatican insisted at the time that a papal visit would only be possible if Catholic priests were accepted in North Korea. No pope has ever visited the communist state.

The Trump Organization threatened the condo board with a lawsuit a month later. "We encourage everyone to move forward and respect the will of the community". At the start of this year, the Trump Organization threatened legal action against the board at 200 Riverside Boulevard if they removed the letters, arguing that such action would "constitute a flagrant and material breach" of a $1 licensing agreement signed in 2000.

In Manhattan, there were 15 residential buildings that bore the Trump name in 2015.

Another building is stripping Trump off its entrance. At Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue, average prices per square foot declined from $3,000 in 2013 to about $2,000 a year ago."Branding your business is a double-edge sword", said Daniel Neiditch, the president of River 2 River Realty in NY.
