In late June last year, Restoration Hardware filed plans with the city indicating that they were overtaking the entire building at 55 Gansevoort Street. Now, what exactly those plans will entail have come to light: Crain's reports that Restoration Hardware will open its first boutique hotel in the former factory building. The undertaking is meant to showcase the pricey brand's pricey interior furnishings in what will likely be pricey and exclusive accommodations. The hotel will only have 14 rooms, and will also have a ground-floor restaurant.
The building on Gansevoort Street between Washington and Greenwich streets is owned by Delshah Capital. Restoration Hardware's flagship store is relocating around the corner, to 9 Ninth Avenue at Little West 12th Street, where the neighborhood's beloved restaurant Pastis once stood.
