The next project to come from the overhaul of the former General Theological Seminary buildings in new York City will be The High Line Hotel, set to open in Spring this year…The 60-room hotel’s future home is a red-brick landmarked structure between 20th and 21st streets that both overlooks the High Line and has a private garden.
Release: MCR Development and The Brodsky Organization are the firms behind the hotel. “Retaining the iconic building’s red brick facade..the property pays tribute to its English collegiate Gothic roots. Furnished with an amalgam of vintage pieces, unexpected artwork, and antique rugs sourced from around the world, each public space and over-sized guest room is exquisitely appointed and boasts unparalleled views of either the High Line or interior quad. The building’s Gothic architecture and dormitory’s original stained glass windows, moldings, pine floors, fireplace mantels and stairwells have also been preserved to further enhance the guest experience.”
