A Manhattan neighborhood known for its boutique hotels will soon be home to a classic luxury brand.
Flag Luxury Group LLC signed a deal with Marriott International Inc. to develop a Ritz-Carlton hotel at 28th Street and Broadway, near the Ace Hotel New York and the NoMad Hotel. The project is expected to cost more than $500 million, according to a statement from Marriott, and will feature 250 hotel rooms and 16 branded residences in a 500-foot (150-meter) tower designed by architect Rafael Vinoly.
The property was connected to the Ritz-Carlton brand in news reports last year, though the deal wasn’t finalized until this month. Flag, run by Dayssi and Paul Kanavos, owns four Ritz-Carlton hotels in Florida, according to the company’s website. The New York hotel is slated to open in 2021.
