New, 2 comments

Now that the empty 5 Beekman Place down near City Hall is an Internet sensation, the Wall Street Journal answers some vital questions about the atrium to end all atriums, like who owns the place? Local developer the Chetrit Group and other investors, who paid $61 million for the building in 2008 and have survived a near foreclosure. The owners wouldn't comment on the building's future, but plans for a 180-room hotel are floating around. [WSJ]
