When last we left Jason Pomeranc and his merry gang at 6 Columbus, word was a first-quarter '06 opening. And with two weeks left in the quarter, we had absolutely no reason to believe anything to the contrary when we woke up this morning. And then we got this construction update via our friends at Hotel Chatter:
The lobby is completely demolished, with not so much as a lightbulb in place. There is currently no heat, no water, and no chance of opening anytime soon. Still to be realized is the entire lobby, a restaurant which has not been started, and 7 floors of rooms.HC put in a call to the folks at 6 Columbus and were told, "It will open this summer." Hey, says the same thing on the website -- must be true!
