Bye Bye Antiques Garage; Hello (Another) Lam Group Property
When we recently attended the grand opening of Hotel Indigo Brooklyn we nodded our heads when someone made the cheeky comment that Duffield Street (home also to the Sheraton Brooklyn and the Aloft Brooklyn) should be renamed Lam Street. They had a point, but the Lam Group's development vision can not be confined to one Brooklyn street. Oh no, they are all over the city, with two Aloft hotels under construction (in the Financial District and in Long Island City); a Four Points in the Financial District, and a five-block patch of Midtown Manhattan that will soon see a Virgin Hotel , the next door Le Meridien Midtown Manhattan and something only known as the Chelsea Full Service Hotel Project at 112 West 25th Street.
You may recognize the address as the location of the Antiques Garage a weekend flea market that had been operating out of a parking garage since 1993. Which made us wonder; what is to become of the Antiques Garage? We reached out to a rep for comment, but so far have not heard back.
