Tommie Hotel Rises On East 31st Street

5/2015 (A. Fine)
It was to be a 37 story hotel, now it is to be a 30 story hotel. It was to be all shiny glass, now it appears it will be about half glass and half metal. It was to open in 2014, then 2015, now 2016. The one constant with the future Tommie Hotel is change. Designed by Gwathmey Siegel Kaufman, I wont even start on the various financial arrangements, partners, and trades made since prior to the financial crisis. Here is a pic, a couple renderings past and current, and we'll see if they can get this finished without further changes.
