A Trump tower could be in the cards for Denver after the head of Trump Hotels apparently signaled this week plans for a presence in every major metro in the U.S.

Trump Hotels CEO Eric Danziger said Tuesday the company is considering opening luxury properties in Denver, Dallas and Seattle. Altogether, Trump Hotels is looking to triple the number of properties in its portfolio, Bloomberg reported Wednesday.

“There are 26 major metropolitan areas in the U.S., and we’re in five,” Danziger is quoted saying. “I don’t see any reason that we couldn’t be in all of them eventually.”

Denverite reached out to Trump Hotels to confirm Bloomberg’s report and find out if and when Denver might see the company come to the city. This article will be updated should we receive a response.

The expansion announcement comes on the heels of Trump’s inauguration as the 45th president of the United States and raises questions for some about how the business mogul is separating his holdings from his office.

Trump’s children, Donald Jr. and Eric became “fully in charge” of the Trump Organization ahead of him taking office, White House press secretary Sean Spicer told reporters Monday.

Denver’s come close to getting a Trump property before.

Back in 2006, Trump had a $1 billion bid to redevelop Union Station shot down. He also presented a plan to construct the tallest building in the city before the Great Recession put a damper on development, Westword reported last summer.
