Donald J. Trump is teaming up with Los Angeles-based Irongate Development to build a 562-suite luxury hotel-condominium resort in Northern Baja, just minutes from the border. Introducing a new level of style and sophistication to the upper-peninsula, Trump Ocean Resort Baja will be the first resort to combine first-class service and amenities with the option of real estate ownership.

“Trump Ocean Resort Baja will redefine the standard of premier property ownership and service excellence for all of Northern Mexico,” said Trump. “I’ve always said, ‘location is everything,’ and being just 30 minutes from downtown San Diego makes this an ideal locale for a premier resort property.”

Architecture and design will mimic the mid-century influences of Luis Barragan, the “father of Mexican modernism.” In addition, a cliff-side location overseeing the Pacific Ocean and walking trails are some characteristics designed to blend indoor and outdoor environments. Other offerings include an owner’s concierge; a pool house bar and café; a restaurant; a health, fitness, and spa centers; an infinity-edge pool, lap and family pools; and a tennis center.

“We’re very pleased to be embarking on our second project with the Trump Organization,” said Jason Grosfeld, principal of Irongate Development, which is also partnering with Trump on the Trump International Hotel and Tower Waikiki Beach Walk. “We have a world-class property, a world-class design team led by Guerin Glass Architects, also lead architect on the Trump Tower Waikiki, and HOK out of Mexico City, and now a world-class name to pull the resort together.”

Construction of the resort is set to begin late 2006, with completion to be over the next three to four years.

Rates for studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom suites will start at about $250.

Trump has created casinos, first-class hotels and resorts, championship golf courses, and has set standards in merchandising and entertainment.

Other Trump projects currently underway include residences, hotels and golf clubs in Chicago, Las Vegas, Florida, Los Angeles, the Caribbean, New York and New Jersey.
