China Daily (Canada) - - FRONT PAGE - By DAN­WEI BU in Van­cou­ver For China Daily

Hol­born Group and TA Global an­nounced that they have signed new busi­ness part­ner­ships for Trump In­ter­na­tional Ho­tel & Tower Van­cou­ver on Feb 19, se­cur­ing the man­age­ment of the devel­op­ment’s restau­rant and night­club, as well as a fit­ness club that will be sit­u­ated ad­ja­cent to Trump Van­cou­ver.

Mott 32, Drai’s and Equinox will of­fer res­i­dents and guests dining, en­ter­tain­ment and fit­ness.

Mott 32 was cre­ated by Mal­colm Wood and Xuan Mu, own­ers of Max­i­mal Con­cepts restau­rant group. Mott 32 will of­fer mod­ern Chi­nese cui­sine in Van­cou­ver, a first for North Amer­ica, with an em­pha­sis on farm-to-ta­ble cooking.

The restau­rant won Hong Kong Tatler’s Best New Restau­rant 2014/ 15 and the 2014 IN­SIDE World Fes­ti­val of In­te­ri­ors World In­te­rior of the Year.

Em­brac­ing fla­vors and in­gre­di­ents from Asia and the world, Mott 32’s cui­sine is prin­ci­pally Can­tonese with sig­na­ture Sichuan and Bei­jing dishes in­clud­ing Pek­ing duck.

The restau­rant is named for 32 Mott Street, New York City’s first Chi­nese con­ve­nience store which opened in 1891.

As with Drai’s Beach Club & Night­club and Drai’s Af­ter­hours in Las Ve­gas, the op­er­a­tion hopes to help re-in­vig­o­rate Van­cou­ver’s nightlife scene with the Trump Van­cou­ver’s day­club-night­club. Un­der the guid­ance of en­tre­pre­neur Vic­tor Drai, the club’s LED light­ing sys­tems and mod­ern tech­nol­ogy will cre­ate a multi-sen­sory ex­pe­ri­ence.

Fit­ness ser­vice Equinox will open ad­ja­cent to Trump Van­cou­ver. The fa­cil­ity will of­fer a full range of yoga, cy­cling, Pi­lates, boxing and sig­na­ture pro­gram­ming such as Barre Burn, MetCon3, Shock­wave, Elim­in8­tor and Pre­ci­sion Run­ning. Equinox’s fit­ness floor will of­fer car­dio, strength and stretch ar­eas where mem­bers can work out on their own or with one of Equinox’s per­sonal train­ers.

“As a lo­cal de­vel­oper, we

are thrilled to bring th­ese renowned brands to Van­cou­ver for the first time,” said Joo Kim Tiah, CEO and pres­i­dent of Hol­born Group, the de­vel­oper of Trump In­ter­na­tional Ho­tel & Tower Van­cou­ver. “Mott 32, Drai’s and Equinox share our vi­sion to pro­vide those living in this world-class city with the high­est level of ser­vice.”

“Of­fer­ing res­i­dents and guests ac­cess to first-class dining and en­ter­tain­ment puts Trump Van­cou­ver at the fore­front of luxury in Van­cou­ver,” added Don­ald Trump, ex­ec­u­tive vice-pres­i­dent of the Trump Or­ga­ni­za­tion. “Along­side Trump Spa by Ivanka, Lon­don Air Ser­vices and Rolls-Royce, we are proud to add Mott 32 and Drai’s to our ros­ter of un­par­al­leled ameni­ties.”

In ad­di­tion to Mott 32 and Drai’s, with full ac­cess to Equinox, the $360 mil­lion Arthur Erick­son­de­signed ho­tel and res­i­dence will fea­ture 147 guest rooms and 15,000 square feet of meet­ing and event space. Above the ho­tel will be 217 luxury res­i­dences with views of the North Shore.
