The famed real estate mogul and reality television star is set to spend $200 million renovating one of the District’s historic landmarks. Here’s a look the Old Post Office building and how the Trump family plans to transform it.
Built in the 1890s, the Old Post Office has been ogled by local developers for years. Competition for the property began almost immediately when the federal government sought private partners in March 2011. Now, real estate mogul Donald J. Trump and his daughter Ivanka are set to spend $200 million renovating the historic landmark and will pay $3 million per year to rent it.Tracy A. Woodward/The Washington Post
