NEW YORK, May 2, 2011 -- HGTV is taking its second annual HGTV Urban Oasis Giveaway to new heights, creating a custom, contemporary residence on the 35th floor of the Trump International Hotel & Tower(R) in Chicago. HGTV's popular designer Vern Yip has drafted plans for the 1,000 square-foot residence that will be the centerpiece of a fall 2011 grand-prize package. The fully-furnished, high-rise residence will include one bedroom, 1 1/2 baths, a gourmet kitchen and extraordinary views of the city's skyline, the Chicago River and Lake Michigan. Viewers can enter for a chance to win the HGTV Urban Oasis Giveaway once a day on HGTV.com as well as once a day on HGTV's Frontdoor.com from Thursday, August 18 - Friday, October 7, 2011. Until then, videos and additional information about the Chicago site are available at HGTV.com/urbanoasis and frontdoor.com/urbanoasis.

"Chicago's Trump International Hotel & Tower is an ideal location for anyone who has dreamed of a luxurious downtown lifestyle and, once again, viewers can expect the HGTV Urban Oasis residence to showcase the best in urban design and progressive city living."

Yip, a favorite with viewers and a panel member on the popular series HGTV Design Star, plans to decorate the high-rise residence with an eclectic mix of antiques and architectural artifacts that can comfortably co-exist with the more contemporary decor reflective of Chicago's heart and soul. The residence also will include access to the tower's five star services such as a spa, fitness center, pool, restaurant and 24-hour concierge.

"When it is completed, the 2011 HGTV Urban Oasis will exemplify the best of Chicago," said Jack Thomasson, Professional House Planner for HGTV. "The Trump International Hotel & Tower is the best address in Chicago, having been ranked #1 in the category of Large City Hotels - Continental U.S. and Canada in Travel + Leisure's 2010 World's Best Awards readers' survey. We are proud to bring this amazing opportunity to fans of the HGTV home giveaways."
