Here's What The Public New York Hotel Will Look Like
Yesterday, news came out that hotelier Ian Schrager was boasting about his new hotel and residences project at 215 Chrystie St. on New York's Lower East Side and today, it's been officially, officially confirmed that the project will be a Public Hotel. (We also heard that earlier this year.)
The building was designed by Pritzker Prize winning architects, Herzog & de Meuron, the team behind the Olympic Birds Nest Stadium in Beijing and the Parrish Art Museum in Southampton, as well as Schrager's 40 Bond residential project. With such a stellar design team on the project, it's no surprise that much attention is being paid to the 11 full floor and half floor apartments with interiors by British designer John Pawson. (Those are likely the residences in the rendering above.)
Yet there is still lots to get excited about with the Public Hotel which will have 370 hotel rooms and be ruled by the popular Public ethos, which, given what we saw in Chicago, is to let people live the high life without high room rates.
No word on construction or completion but we sincerely hope it's soon.
