Flea Market Hotel

Soho. Once the mecca of downtown cool is now more of a quaint outdoor mall with some nice restaurants and very nice housing. We're fine with that. But what about that weird flea market on the corner of Howard and Broadway, just one block north of Canal? It's one of the few blocks that actually dead ends, with Howard being halted by Mercer to the West. Call us crazy, but it seems weird that this prime corner lot, surrounded by all that valuable property, would be used as a low end flea market. Well apparently, the owner of this lot agrees. The flea market's days are pretty much numbered, with the owner planning to build a hotel on the lot. A luxury hotel to boot. What else would you expect? Said owner/developer is in discussions with some heavy hitters about the restaurant and bar space, but no deals are in place. What's more, the adjacent buildings are either vacant or severely underutilized, meaning that we could be looking at much more than just a little boutique number.

sketchy block, but I've been in a couple apartments there. If you can deal with Canal street for a back yard, the places I saw were ENORMOUS and way under priced. Floor through etc. A real steal.

Thank God it's going to be a LUXURY hotel. There just aren't enough of those downtown. Eventually the city south of fourteenth street will just be a series of interconnecting hotels

What's "STK" and how do I get reservations?

Oh and I live down that way. I think a hotel in that slot is fantastic. It gets pretty nasty there on weekends.

STK is a place where anon 7:54 goes with a pre-lubed anus to have meat pounded into his 2-hole. Reservations are by invite only (unless you are a broker).

ontent that you might be interested in based on your content usage, and providing tools that help you to see what content is most valuable to you based on your usage of the feeds that you have installed (amongst other things). so underwhelmed, but still a loyal netvibes user
