A 298-unit Fort Lauderdale condominium development intended to bear the Trump name is being offered in a bulk sale, the Sun Sentinel reported.

The troubled building at 551 North Fort Lauderdale Beach Boulevard has no formal asking price, the Sentinel said. Lawsuits and a foreclosure have plagued the 24-story beachfront tower, once slated to be named Trump International Hotel and Tower, prior to a dispute with the Donald.

The property still has around $4 million in lien claims from buyers who put down deposits but whose units were never delivered, the Sentinel said.

The building is also slated for foreclosure auction on March 14.
