"Trump Place," a Manhattan high-rise developed by Donald TrumpDonald John TrumpCorker: US must determine responsibility in Saudi journalist's death Five takeaways from testy Heller-Rosen debate in Nevada Dem senator calls for US action after 'preposterous' Saudi explanation MORE in the 1990s, could soon have the president's name removed from the building.

The condo board at "Trump Place" has sued the Trump Organization in an attempt to remove Trump's name from the building after residents complained it would damage property values, The Washington Post reports.

Both parties are expected in court on Thursday for a hearing, where the board is hoping New York Justice Eileen Bransten will rule that a licensing agreement does not mean the building is bound to display the Trump name.

"Trump Place," located at 200 Riverside Boulevard in Manhattan, is one of six buildings bearing the same name. Since the 2016 election, three of the buildings have removed Trump from their name, according to the Post. 


Other Trump-branded buildings, including Trump hotels in New York, Toronto and Panama, have removed Trump from their name.

The "Trump Place" court challenge could impact future Trump-brand buildings who may seek to remove his name from their buildings in the future.
