I just got back from the Trump Tower Waikiki selection on it's first day of a two day unit selection and they are practically sold out. When I left the Halekulani Hotel at around 6:45pm this evening, there were about six units left for sale and those were in the $2.5 million range. Unit selection started at 11:00am this morning and my client's selection time was at 6:30pm. By the time I got there, at around 5:15pm, almost everything was gone. We couldn't beleive it. Sold out in less than 10 hours. My clients didn't want the higher priced units so we just put ourselves in a back up position. I didn't expect it to sell out so quickly and kind of felt bad for the people who had selection times tomorrow. That's just the way the ball bounces I guess.
Prices were between $445,000 and $4.5 million yet some buyers bought multiple units. Trump International Hotel and Tower is going to be a 462-unit luxury hotel-condominium with concierge, spa, infinity pool and more in a great part of Waikiki. The whole area around it is being redeveloped in what is being called Waikiki's biggest redevelpement in history. It's supposed to be a new leisure destination with excitement and energy yet a place where one can relax and live with the beach and park right across the street.
I think it's a great project for the Waikiki neighborhood and can't wait to see it when it is completed in 2009. Please go to http://www.trumpwaikikihotel.com/ for more information.
