Trump Gets Green Light, Ruffles Feathers (Again)

It comes as no surprise that Donald Trump has sparked more controversy with his latest project—a 45-story hotel-condo to be built in SoHo. Yesterday, the real estate mogul won approval from the Department of Buildings to construct what neighborhood activists are calling a ruse that would enable Trump to develop residential, non-hotel units in a zoned area that prohibits such. Opponents to the project are certainly being vocal, with comments from various officials and community groups that are likely to cause more than a few headaches (and possibly some legal troubles) for Trump.
