Controversy is not only surrounding Donald Trump's second year into his presidency, but also the buildings in New York City that bear his name.
As reported by the New York Post, a condo building called Trump Place at 200 Riverside Boulevard could face a lawsuit on whether it can remove the 'Trump' name from its exterior.
The building currently carries the name following a licensing deal from 2000, according
to The New York Times. The agreement described Donald Trump as “worldwide
renowned builder and developer of real estate who enjoys the highest
reputation in these fields among others.”
However, DJT Holdings, a company affiliated with Trump, could extricate itself from the deal if the building
goes bankrupt or stops being a condo, according to the licensing
Harvey Koeppel, a former resident at 200 Riverside, told the Times that a majority of the building's residents favored the name removal, based on an anonymous survey conducted from last February.
