S & P marketing firms John Hirkenrath has told me by phone that the Trump Tower Waikiki will finally re-commence closings at this landmark Waikiki property. It seems that cash buyers will be closed first and according to S & P this will commence by the end of March which will be closely followed by closings of other units in the building who's owners financed their luxury condominiums.
S & P had been reporting that all units should be closed by April however with S&p delivering Irongates promised closing dates several times from October through February, the proof will be in the pudding.
The new restaurant BLT continues to get rave reviews from foodies and the staff seems to be well trained and very accommodating. I spent an evening with clients at the bar and had delicious Sushi. The "signature cocktails" lacked pizaz and should definitely be revamped although our bar tender coming from the bar with the best selection of beer on the island probably didn't allow for his mixologist skills to rise to the top. Scott Ingwers (The GM) continues to impress me and if the other units in the building would close he might actually have product available to rent. With approximately 300 units yet to close the building remains a promising gem in the midst of a revitalized Waikiki Beachwalk.
Irongate needs to take a hint from the ever patient original Buyers and close this project post haste before the bitter after taste becomes something even a tropical toothbrush can't remove.
For any additional information on available inventory in the building please feel free to call Dano Newbill at 808-228-8434
