Starwood seeking buyer for Baccarat Hotel

http://nypost.com/2014/06/12/starwoo...accarat-hotel/

[IMG]http://****************.wordpress.com/2014/06/hotel7.jpg?w=720&h=480&crop=1[/IMG]

Quote:
Barry Sternlicht’s Starwood Capital Group has been reaching out to investors with high hopes of selling the company’s upcoming flagship Baccarat Hotel for around what would be a record-setting $2 million for each of its 114 elegant rooms and suites, The Post has learned.

The residences above it, which would not be part of any hotel sale, are being sold with asking prices that are topped by a $60 million penthouse.

Starwood has been quietly offering to sell the newly developed hotel portion of the Baccarat Hotel & Residencesat 20 W. 53rd Street — across from MoMa, several industry sources told The Post.
Starwood would retain management of the hotel through its affiliated SH Group.

Such a sale at up to $228 million would allow the company to make money on the trophy hotel — filled with more than 12,000 Baccarat items — even before it opens later this year, plus possibly establish the new brand with a record-setting deal and, perhaps, bring in the buyer as a strategic partner to help grow Baccarat around the world.

At the least, a sale would give Starwood fresh capital to redeploy to develop new projects while keeping its hotel flags flying.

Man there are so many of these kind of towers going up over NY with the operable windows that ruin an otherwise perfect design.

It looks good now that the black sides are uncovered! Nearly complete, too.

I walked by yesterday. It looks great. The chandelier-style/Chrystal on the first few floors is amazing.

Almost done. The crystaline base cladding is an interesting touch, creating a multi-colored sparkling effect normally seen in chandeliers crystals.

Wow, that side pattern is awesome. Too bad this wasn't taller! Double the height and you've got a tower that would fit right in on Billionaire's Row!

Looks surprisingly good! Had me a little worried early on (I generally dislike 'framed' curtainwalls).

The side looks amazing in person. The base is incredible.

Does anybody know the address or name of the 1950s-looking office tower next to it?
