Related gets $263M for Yotel space
June 13, 2011 04:30PM



Related President Jeff Blau and a Yotel cabin

Yotel, the European pod hotel chain that made its U.S. debut in Hell's Kitchen this month, paid $263 million for its brand new digs in the Related Companies' MiMA tower at 440 West 42nd Street. According to a deed filed today with the city, Related transferred the MiMA commercial condominium that Yotel now occupies on June 1. Yotel officially opened its doors two days later. The 669-room hotel, of which The Real Deal architecture columnist James Gardner is not a fan, offers guests 170 square feet of space in exchange for around $150 per night. Making up the rest of MiMA's 60 stories are 500 rental units, 151 condos, 23,000 square feet of amenities and 13,000 square feet of retail space. TRD

Gehry Gets Intimate with Hell's Kitchen Signature Theater Company



In the olden days, Frank Gehry "couldn't get a Big Apple commission off the ground" (in the words of Julie Iovine), but Gehry's now clocking in his third NYC project, this one for the Signature Theater Company set to open February 2012 in the Related Companies-backed Hell's Kitchen Mystery Tower (440 W. 42nd St). The theater occupies the first four floors at the base of the tower and has, so far, "only spent $6 million over the original $60 million cost." Some stats:
· It occupies an entire city block on 42nd Street between Dyer and 10th Avenue
· It is the largest non-profit performing arts center built in New York since Lincoln Center.
· The 70,000-square-foot space will contain three theaters of "different character and configurations," including a proscenium modeled after an opera house, a flexible courtyard space, and an end stage theater.

And straight from the horse's mouth, sayeth Gehry: "I wanted to create a space that celebrates and enhances the intimacy between the performer and the audience."
