Looks like the conversion of the Bossert Hotel will take a little longer as developers the Chetrit Group and David Bistricer have decided to change architects. This on the heels the their latest plans being nixed by the LPC.
Also, residents of nearby 200 Hicks Streets have voiced their concerns about noise and other issues arising from construction on the historic hotel.
Brownstoner: Jeffrey Holmes of Australian architecture firm Woods Bagot has replaced Gene Kaufman as the architect of record overseeing the conversion of the landmarked Hotel Bossert. Selldorf Architects was also briefly on the project, but parted ways earlier this year. The latest filings to convert the Jehovah’s Witnesses property back into a hotel were disapproved in November.
