Another Trump-branded building is stripping the president's name

NYT Condo owners vote to strip Trump name from building

The New York Times reported that the residents of 200 Riverside Boulevard in the borough's tony Upper West Side are looking forward to the removal of the "Trump Place" branding on October 18.

Almost 70 percent of the owners in the 377-unit tower at 200 Riverside Blvd. voted earlier this month for the change, saying they were anxious about resale value and security because of its connection to President Donald Trump's name. The condo board estimates the job will cost about $23,000.

Trump's divisive brand of politics has provoked similar moves by other New York City buildings, including what was once the Trump SoHo hotel in Lower Manhattan.

The name had become controversial among the building's residents during Trump's campaign and presidency.

But the condos at 200 Riverside-as well as 220 and 240 Riverside-continue to be managed (though not owned) by the Trump Organization, complicating efforts for those residents to join their neighbors in purging the president's name. Though the tower's legal name will not be affected, the building will now be known as 200 Riverside Boulevard. "We bought in the building with it".

Edgar Corzo of Mexico's National Human Rights Commission expressed concern about the police deployment in Ciudad Hidalgo. After they take office, they have agreed to work together with the U.S.to attempt to make the plan endure long-term.

Another condo building also took down the name.

Almost 70 percent of the condo owners voted this fall to remove Trump's name, despite the estimated $23,000 cost to pry off the letters and clean the facade, the Times reported. "Our entire community has engaged in a thorough and respectful deliberative process regarding how to address the signage on our building".

The Trump Organization argued the 2000 agreement meant the name could never be wiped off but the judge ruled in May in favor of the board, saying they could take down the signs if residents agreed.

The building is part of a complex Trump helped to develop in the 1990s.
