We received a news release yesterday from the Lightstone Group about Moxy East Village, their 285-key hotel going up at 112-120 E. 11th St. in partnership with Marriott.
The news was primarily about "the close of $91 million in financing with Bank of the Ozarks for the company's third Moxy hotel in New York City."
There were other details about the hotel between Third Avenue and Fourth Avenue that may (or may not!) be of interest.
To the release, via the EVG inbox:
Moxy East Village will be located south of Union Square in the East Village, across from Webster Hall. In a nod to Moxy's vibrant, ever-transforming neighborhood, the hotel's design concept is based on urban archeology that references the city's past, present and future. Conceived as a vertical timeline, each floor reveals a different layer in Lower Manhattan's history, creating a sense of discovery for guests.
The micro-room, macro-amenity hotel will feature smartly designed bedrooms, technology savvy amenities, community based social programming, rooftop fitness, co-working spaces, and six new eating and drinking establishments for guests and locals.
So, to recap: each floor will be designed after "a different layer in Lower Manhattan's history" and there will be "six new eating and drinking establishments for guests and locals."
