Paradox Hotel & Tower
Vancouver, B.C. Canada
Designed 2005 with Nick Milkovich Architects, MCM, and DYS Architecture
The building mass is a simple, dynamic, spiral form, with the same triangular floor plate from the bottom
to the top with a gradual rotation. The residences are located above the hotel, capturing some of the most
inspiring views the city has to offer, and providing a dramatic edition to Vancouver's unique downtown
skyline. The distinctive twisting form reaches 613 metres or 63 storeys.
The building was originally designed for the Ritz-Carlton Hotel & Residences on the same site, but that
ended after the 2008 financial crisis put the project on hold. The design was modified and it opened as the
Trump International Hotel & Tower until 2020, when it closed after the accumulated impact of COVID 19
on its financial situation.
Holborn Properties are the owners and developers of the overall site, which is a stunning addition to
