60 Thompson to Get Some Competition in Soho
Given some building constraints (they can't go that far underground), the hotel will actually have a lobby located above the ground. Guests will enter a glass elevator on street level that takes them up to the lobby. Word is there are going to be some other quirky design concepts. Some subs who are involved in the planning stages are saying that the design is going to be pretty crazy and should give 60 Thompson a run for it's money.
Apparently, the group behind the hotel project is called Brock Capital. DBTH predicts a 2009 opening. We say Pomeranc better hurry up and open Six Columbus, Thompson LES and Smythe before this one opens.
