A block-through development site on Greenwich Street along Debrosses Street won't be getting a Gene Kaufman-designed restaurant after all, but a high-end hotel. Commercial Observer reports that Western Heritable Investment Company, Caspi Development and Barone Management are planning an eight-story hotel with 90 to 100 guest rooms for the site, which takes the address of 456 Greenwich Street. The lotcurrently occupied in part by a single-story garagestraddles the boundary of the Tribeca North Historic District and as such, the developers have decided to seek Landmarks approval for the building's design. The project architect has not been named, although its rendering is accredited to architect Stephen B. Jacobs Group.
There is a Request For Proposals out for the hotel brand. When complete, the 93,900-square-foot hotel will have a bar, an interior courtyard, a spa, a pool, a business center, and a screening room. The hotel also might have a private members club.
