Hotel project revived for 13th Street; will include 'exclusive rooftop lounge'

Curbed reports that the long zombified hotel project on 13th Street and Fourth Avenue has a new life via a Hyatt subsidiary...

Per the news release:

The other Hyatt-branded property announced today, slated to open Fall 2011, will be located at 13th Street and 4th Avenue, a block off Union Square, and near Washington Square Park. Union Square is adjacent to some of Manhattan’s preeminent residential and commercial neighborhoods including Chelsea, Gramercy Park, and the Flatiron District. Some of Manhattan’s most celebrated restaurants and popular nightlife spots surround the hotel. The area is extremely popular with residents and tourists alike, and is an activity hub for major hospitals, universities and retail centers. The hotel will offer stunning accommodations to its guests, including private terraces on the second floor, a well-appointed fitness center and an exclusive rooftop lounge. The historic façade and 23 foot ceilings in the lobby will create a grand space for the stylish lounge opening up to 13th Street and a restaurant concept inspired by the local and organic Greenmarket.

"near Washington Square Park" - i would venture to guess it's actually closer to TSP, no?

"the area is extremely popular with residents and tourists alike" - how is an area popular with residents? because they live there?

ah, the cursed, cursed life of having to write press releases about bullshit
