Yip hands over keys for 'HGTV Urban Oasis Giveaway 2011'
Donald Trump is the developer behind the skyscraper -- which combines condos and a hotel -- and it has previous TV ties.
"I had the privilege of getting to completely design the unit. I tried to stick to local home-decor stores, as opposed to a big chain. I just wanted to be inspired by things that were authentically Chicago."
Yip is a big fan of the Windy City, and he's also a fan of the winner, Deborah Robertson of Baltimore.
"She registered every single day for the entire entry period," Yip says, "which I love, because it shows you the determination. She thoroughly wanted it, and she could not be nicer or sweeter.
"I was also given the privilege being able to meet her up in Chicago and actually hand her the keys to the unit. You can imagine how life-changing that is."
