An updated look at that Moxy hotel for 11th Street

On Monday, we noted the foundation work was underway for the Moxy hotel coming to 11th Street between Third Avenue and Fourth Avenue.

To date, only one preliminary rendering had been making the rounds.

Now, though, New York Yimby got the first full one via Stonehill & Taylor Architects...



Per Yimby: "[T]he building will be substantially more attractive than most new hotels in Manhattan, with industrial-style casement windows that lack the PTAC units that proliferate across so many low-budget developments."

The hotel geared toward millennial travelers will feature 311 rooms and a variety of eating-drinking options with an optimistic opening date of late 2018.

...and after the party, IT'S THE AFTER PARTY. #atthemoxy

Party all the time Party all the time Party all the time.

Who thought Eddie Murphy's and Rick James's awful song would be so prophetic.

So much for preserving affordable housing...

I guess the city planners... wait there are no city planners, decided the East Village is the perfect dumping ground for substance abusers (alcohol this time) from all over the globe. I can't imagine what housekeeping will face on a day to day basis. My sympathy for the remaining residents on this block, what did you and we do to deserve this?

I like the design. But a side street isn't the right place for it here. Why not an Avenue.

"[T]he building will be substantially more attractive than most new hotels in Manhattan" - hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaaaaaa...

And if that is indeed the case, I'd hate to see the competition. Is it too late to look at the eclipse without protective eyewear?

I want to see the substance of the increased attractiveness. That, or I want the word substantial never to be used again in this context.

If that looks out of place next to the other buildings, wonder if the other
buildings will go too.
All so sad.

That room looks like a dump, in the instagram, even if it was tidied. Offensive to pick a rug that thick. Pfft... and is that a leather beanbag chair? This is a tyranny against good design, outside and in. I am sure their restaurants and bars would fit in at an airport. A shame for the neighbors on the street to share their sidewalk with an inevitable sh*tshow of taxis and ubers jockeying out front.

By the way, did anyone else notice that the pic from the Moxy in Tempe, Arizona, looks like nothing so much as a dorm room post-drunk?

@8:07am: EXACTLY!

And yeah, the room in the instagram photo looks trashed. Maybe that'll be a Moxy "amenity": your room is ALREADY pre-trashed.

I didn't realize this is going to be a destination for millennials. Fuck. This is the last thing our neighborhood needs. As if we don't have enough duche bags, bros and entitled brats taking up space here.

1. The traffic is going the wrong way on the render. 11th Street is one way, west bound. Also, they show Pourhouse as open! LOL, nope.

2. Concerts at (the old) Webster Hall are going to disrupt the hell out of this place.

3. The only possible silver lining is a bump in revenue for Amsterdam Billiards (fingers crossed).

A dorm room with a giant brown turd on a puke green shag rug. Classy. /s

Upgraded trailer park trash meets Greek frat house dorm? Is that supposed to pass as Bohemian? $20 bucks nite would be all I'd pay to stay there
