NYC's Other Thompson Hotel :: Smyth Tribeca
We've been so wrapped up in covering the ongoing saga of Six Columbus we almost forgot that Jason Pomeranc has another property in the works in Manhattan: Smyth Tribeca. (His crew is also at work another downtown hotel: LES Thompson.)
The latest info we can dig up sets the opening date for the Smyth at Spring 2008, which is vague enough to change. The hotel is a bit different in that in addition to 100 rooms, it will also feature 15 condos on the top floors--that's the kitchen above--and an owners-only roof terrace. (Somebody call LaLo!)
The architects for the hotel half of the project are Brennan Beer Gorman, who also did the Mandarin Oriental at Time Warner Center and the Gramercy Park Hotel, and an underground bar and ground floor restaurant are also in the works.
We contacted Thompson Hotels to ask for more details on the property but haven't heard anything back yet. And the information line listed for the hotel didn't do much for us: it's just a voicemail box.
