NEW YORK | 261 West 34th Street | m | ft | fl | Pro

The north side of 34th between 8th and 7th is a disgrace, particularly on the western end of the block. However, several properties recently changed hands, and I anticipate that this junk will be redeveloped.

261 W 34th was sold recently, and the junk store that it houses is apparently closing.

251-253 also sold recently and Is empty.

I would not be surprised if Vornado owns the LLCs which bought this garbage. It owns the eyesore on 34th and 8th from which TGI Fruday's recently moved. Given that Vornado owns a lot of major buildings in this area, it has a significant incentive to clean it up, particularly if it wants to lure a tenant to anchor 15 Penn.

Chetrit bought 245-247 W34th and planned a small hotel. Maybe he will flip the property.


This is the block O'Garbage between 34th and 33rd on 7th -- just north of 15 Penn. Vornado better get to work!

No wonder they're going out of business. Who would spend a dime on that ugly crap?

First Look at Upcoming 34th Street Hotel; To Feature Pool Overlooking MSG/Penn Station

First Look at Upcoming 34th Street Hotel; To Feature Pool Overlooking MSG/Penn Station
June 23
Here’s our first look at a new 300-room hotel with floors of retail and entertainment amenities planned for Midtown’s bustling 34th Street corridor. Chetrit Group and Cornell Realty spent years putting together a wide development site at 251-263 West 34th Street near the corner of Eighth Avenue. Last year Crain’s reported that the parties dissolved their partnership and split the parcels taking 80 feet of frontage each. Cornell is planning a four-story retail building on its half of the site and Chetrit is planning the retail and hotel tower shown above for its portion at 255 West 34th Street.
