Floors 4 to 40 would be the hotel portion. It does not say five floors anywhere. Maybe you misread five-star as five floors?

Besides, it's not possible to fit 128 hotel rooms on only five floors.

Scruffy May 11, 2008 6:29 AM

You're right. In my work haze I misread it. thanks for catching that.

If it catches the attention away from the Beaver house, that'll be a good thing.

The primary elements of the project at 45 Broad St. include approximately 13,000 sf of retail space located on the ground level and second floor; a Nobu restaurant on the third floor; a 128-room, five-star Nobu Hotel with a ground floor entrance; as well as 77 super-luxury condominium residences on floors 41 through 62, which Swig tells GlobeSt.com should have no trouble getting filled.

So, a groundbreaking by the fall, yet another will be under construction Downtown before the end of the year.

Dear Jesus.

They are just overrunning this town, aren't they. I love it.

Am I the only one who thinks Beaver House is cool? (That's the black and yellow one, right?)

things being the way they are in NYC, i'm not going to count this as a done deal until steel is rising from the ground.

^^^I consider this a bit different though. I have no doubt it's a go.

Im sorry but yes. I was there on Tuesday, its not hideous per say but i didn't like it at all. I feel that that intersection is prominent enough to require something far classier. I haven't seen what it looks like from across the river though

If you are waiting for steel to rise here, you may have to wait a long time. :haha:

I'm not too worried about the Beaver House. At the rate NY has been moving in the past four decades, it'll get reclad before any sentimental memories get created around it.

I didn't like it at first, but grew to like it. It's something different for Downtown, especially in that area. It's not as if any other typical residential would have been well received.

Yeah, these residential, mixed-use developments are always slow to rise, but once they begin, they dart up very quickly. I don't expect this one to be any different.

No, I would highly doubt that (especially being a residential tower). I would like it to happen, but I just don't see it happening.

Same deal with me pretty much. I'm still not too fond of it, but the fact that its different kind of made me appreciate it more. I guess I have no choice but to like it being that I pass by it nearly everyday.:rolleyes:

beaver houase is cool i think, i like it alot. the color-design gives a good contrast

Scruffy May 15, 2008 12:25 AM

Nobu us the name of a very exclusive high class restaurant here in Manhattan. And now they are branching into hotels.

Swede May 15, 2008 7:55 AM

I'm really liking this one, but I'd like to see the other sides too. How will the space between Nobu and the Beaver look? seems they'll be really really close.
The density of downtown is already unbelievable and keeps going up :)

Antares41 May 15, 2008 4:53 PM

^That space is mostly occupied by 55 Broad street building (~403 ft. ). The #13 post by Scruffy has a good overhead view. The parking lot to the roughly northeast is where the Beaver House is now, 55 Broad is on the corner, and the Nobu will be roughly to the northwest of it.

Robert De Niro, hotel magnate


Actor Robert De Niro, who's a key investor in the just-opened The Greenwich Hotel in his beloved TriBeCa neighborhood in downtown Manhattan, is involved with another hotel project.

The Oscar-winner, who also has invested in Nobu Matsuhisa’s trendy Nobu restaurants, is a partner in the Japanese chef’s Nobu Hotel and Residences, due to break ground this year in Manhattan’s financial district and open in 2010. It'll be a sleek 62-story tower with a Nobu restauarant.

Matsuhisa aims to meld "the impeccable attention to detail characteristic of Japanese hospitality with modern amenities and sophisticated luxuries," he says in a statement.

It's planned as part of a Nobu chain -- the first one is going up on Israel's Mediterranean "Riviera."

Do readers have thoughts on chefs going into the hotel business on a large scale? I know some have inns at their restaurants, but this is a far bigger deal. What do you think?

I also find it interesting that De Niro -- who is known for being a non-publicity-seeking actor's actor and whose ever-expanding restaurant investments include Nobu and Ago -- is really jumping into the hospitality business.
