Ivanka Trump in DC to Talk Old Post Office

Andrew Huff, DC Council

Ivanka Trump and Councilman Jack Evans met Feb. 27 to discuss plans for a Donald Trump hotel at the Old Post Office Building.

Ivanka Trump met with D.C. Councilman Jack Evans Monday to discuss the new hotel at the Old Post Office building at 12th and Pennsylvania avenues in Northwest.

Ivanka's father, Donald, plans to convert the District's second-largest structure, which dates to the late 19th century, into a 250-room luxury hotel.

The General Services Administration is negotiating the deal, and as chairman of the D.C. Council Finance Committee, Evans will oversee any part of the federal deal involving taxes and development.

Trump plans to spend $200 million on renovations to the building, which will be renamed Trump International Hotel.
