    It’s no maiden voyage for Gene Kaufman. The new owner of 8 Maiden Lane has tapped the prolific architect to design a 25-story, 191-room hotel on the site — his second on the narrow Financial District street.

    The 75,742-square-foot project, to be crowned with a 25th-floor bar and outdoor terrace, will be located between Broadway and Liberty Place, according to a plan exam cited by BuzzBuzzHome. The cryptically-named 10-12 MLane LLC purchased the current four-story building in August for $5.6 million. The seller, Rusdan Operating Corp., had owned the lot since 1978. [more]

  • Gene Kaufman and 70-90 Columbus Streets

    Gwathmey Siegel Kaufman & Associates has unveiled a new design for a planned 1.2 million-square-foot development project in downtown Jersey City (see rendering to the right). The firm was recently selected by Ironstate Development and partner Panepinto Properties to replace Costas Kondylis as the architect of two 50-story residential and hotel towers planned for 70 and 90 Columbus Street in Jersey City.

    Ironstate chose GSKA after it successfully designed the firm’s development of a W hotel in Hoboken, according to James Ronga, vice president of development for Ironstate. Gene Kaufman, a principal at GSKA, told The Real Deal in a statement that his firm is working with the same footprint and square footage, but will make “qualitative modifications that result in a project with a distinct geometry and a plan that better integrates the site into the Jersey City community.” [more]
