Trump Eyes Moskva

MOSCOW -- American real estate mogul Donald Trump has submitted his project for revamping a downtown hotel to the city government, a Moscow construction official said Friday.

The city wants Trump to renovate the dilapidated Moskva Hotel, an ugly gray monolith next to the Kremlin, without changing its exterior, said Vladimir Resin, first deputy head of Moscow government.

"We are not building any towers in the old part of the city," Resin said in an interview with Itar-Tass. "We are not going to turn the ancient city into a Manhattan."
