Report: A Moxy Hotel planned for the Bowery

[Google Street View]

There's yet another new hotel coming to the Bowery.

As The Real Deal reported yesterday, the Lightstone Group is in contract to buy 151 Bowery ... and will use the space — currently a lighting store at the southeast corner of the Bowery at Broome — to building their fourth Moxy Hotel in NYC.

The seller, Emmut Properties, previously had designs on an 8-story condo-hotel combo for the buildings at 151-153 Bowery (aka 331-337 Broome). Presumably the Moxy, Marriott's so-called millennial-friendly brand, will rise on this full parcel.

The 13-story Moxy East Village recently topped out on 11th Street between Third Avenue and Fourth Avenue.

Other new Bowery hotels include the citizenM at 189 Bowery and Sister City at 225 Bowery.

The Bowery is actually the perfect location for a flophouse full of rowdy drunks.

Oh please. Tell me this is a joke. Fuck no. The Bowery is already a boring, bro-like shit show as it is. Adding a Moxy hotel to that mix? They are unitarian and ugly.

More gentrification. Rich drunks displacing the poor drunks.

@9:59am: Exactly: a new generation of Bowery bums to replace the old ones who've died off.

I truly hope Marriott loses tons of money on the Moxy hotels ... enough to make them wish they'd never dabbled in making "millenials" happy!

PS: Are these Moxy hotels going to be convertible to dormitories down the line??

With all of the consistently empty rooms from the over abundance of hotels and plenty of air bnb, it's amazing they keep doing this and taking any characteristics of the areas with them
