    The POS with the Fidelity sign and the one with the Security should be razed.

    Yes, very cool - 'Piet Boon'
    The penthouse loft: designed by Piet Boon.

    excerpt - The James New York boasts one 1300 sq.-ft. non-smoking Penthouse Loft, designed by world-renowned Dutch designer Piet Boon, whose work marries functional, timeless design and natural materials with distinguishing signature details.

    This guy designs buildings, dinner ware, sinks, interiors, textiles, golf courses and more. IMHO his Architectural design work is among the best in world; multi-disciplinary design practices are the wave of the future. I is obvious that being trained as an architect is no guarantee of good architectural design: in fact, most work done by practicing architects today is pretty crappy. I am glad this thread has presented me with the opportunity to speak a bit about an international designer who is relatively little known: but one I very much admire.

    The 'functional design' philosophy of Piet Boon is similar the current practice of IPD and design-build project delivery methods. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oFFPRO6kwl4

    James Hotel trades for $85M to Prudential Real Estate Investors


    The REAL DEAL
    By Katherine Clarke
    May 02, 2013

    Updated at 6:20 p.m.: The James Hotel, a 70,000-square-foot property at 27 Grand Street in Soho, has traded for close to $85 million, according to its former owner Brack Capital Real Estate.

    The 20-story, 114-room property debuted in 2010, and is managed by Denihan Hospitality Group. The hotel is home to the famed restaurant of star chef David Burke.

    Denihan will continue to manage the hotel and operations will remain unchanged under the property’s new ownership, according to a release from Brack. Prudential Real Estate Investors is the buyer of the property, according to a source with knowledge of the deal.

    “We were always incredibly confident in the potential presented in this well-situated location for a one-of-a-kind property and are pleased to see this hotel not only meet our goals, but exceed expectations,” said Issac Hera, CEO of Brack.

    Brack appears to have purchased the hotel site for more than $30 million in 2007. It was formerly home to the Moondance Diner, a longtime Soho fixture.
