A rather fascinating new listing has appeared at the the Massey Knakal site involving the seemingly dormant hotel project at 25 Great Jones at Lafayette:
A 13-story boutique hotel development slated for 48 guestrooms. The project awaits a flag or boutique operator to customize. The ground floor could be occupied by a hotel lobby and a lounge. The cellar could include a boardroom, spa rooms and offices. The demolition, excavation, concrete super structure, and construction lift are fully complete; whereas the interior partition framing and electrical are partially complete. A liquor license has been submitted and conditionally approved. The hotel is located in one of the most desirable downtown locations. Nearby hotel suites can go for as high as $650/night, as seen at the Bowery and Cooper Square Hotels. The adjacent luxury Great Jones Spa has expressed strong interest in a joint venture to provide services and direct access for the hotel. 22 Bond Street, a 25’ wide contiguous one story building, is available separately by Massey Knakal; it could be combined to enlarge the food and beverage space of 25 Great Jones if needed. Hotel opportunities are exceedingly rare in this historic district enduring little or no future competition in this trendy downtown location.
