The Bowery To Get Another Boutique Hotel; This Time a Green One
While we still aren't quite sure what's happening with Greenhouse 26 (it could open as soon as 2009), there is another green hotel on the horizon for Manhattan.
A 63-room boutique hotel is slated for 250 Bowery between Houston and Prince streets across from the New Museum and it will be a totally green hotel with "sustainable technologies."
These include a green roof, geothermal system, water-efficient plumbing fixtures, a steel facade as well as sustainable and renewable construction materials.
Peter Moore Associates are behind the building's conception. This architecture/development company, helmed by Peter Moore (natch) have mostly done residential buildings but as Brownstoner reports, they are getting more and more involved in hotels. No word yet on what the hotel will be called but they are aiming for a early 2009 opening date.
Bonus: Curbed scored some renderings of the place way back in 2006. We just have to wonder what's been taking so long.
