Will Jason Pomeranc Be the Gansevoort South's New Neighbor?
The Gansevoort South will be getting another boutique hotel competitor soon. Already next door to the under-construction W South Beach, the Gansevoort will have to fight for guests with a planned 7-story development project across the street.
The Ankara project was supposed to be a condo development but now its developers want to put in a hotel and guess who they have been talking with? Miami Beach USA blog has this report:
"We have had several conversations with Thompson Hotels out of New York which we are hopeful to conclude," stated an attorney representing the project at a recent Board of Adjustments hearing.
The Ankara has had a few discussions with other hotel management companies but this one sounds the most promising.
Jason Pomeranc and co. were once the management company for the Sagamore Hotel but that ended pretty badly and Thompson Hotels haven't been back in Miami since. Let's hope they fare better this time around.
