The long-stalled lot at 215 Chrystie Street is going to be a condo-hotel tower, courtesy of hotelier/developer Ian Schrager and Steven Witkoff. Zoning documents scanned on April 15 give a first look at the massing of the building, which, even its earlier iterations, has oft ignited neighbors' fears about height and scale and even spurred an art gallery to try and block it. The 28-story building, which features setbacks on several sides and what looks like ovular mechanicals on top, will house 367 hotel rooms on the bottom 17 floors and 11 residences from levels 19 through 26. It'll be New York's first Public hotel.
Filings call for 23 parking spaces, as well as bicycle storage for the hotel and residents, a nightclub, a gym, an "eating and drinking establishment, a sky lobby, a library bar, a retail shop, meeting rooms, multiple terraces, and another bar and lounge. Beyer Blinder Belle is the architect.
