Ian Schrager’s Public Hotel on Chrystie Street Tops Out at 28 Stories, for Real this Time
Okay, so we may have jumped the gun last month in reporting that Ian Schrager’s Public Hotel hit the apex. That feat was actually achieved last week, with 215 Chrystie Street now dwarfing everything in the immediate skyline. Between the two dispatches, construction workers erected an additional three floors set back from the others. It’s an eyesore of epic proportions.
(The token American flag was shifted to the summit in kind.)
As previously reported, the self-described “tough luxe” development – acquired by Schrager in 2012 for $50 million – will boast eleven ultra-pricey “one of a kind” condos atop the 370-room Public Hotel. There are three 4BR apartments that are still on the market, according to Streeteasy.
Jean Georges Vongeritchen, meanwhile, is in charge of the food and beverage component for the hotel. The ground floor restaurant-coffee shop-bar will be accompanied by at least eight other complementary venues within the 28-story development. Community Board 3 will consider the application next week (April 11).
215 Chrystie Street is the first Public-branded hotel for New York City. A second location is also planned for the Dumbo neighborhood in Brooklyn.
