    Developer Morris Moinian of Fortuna Realty Group is partnering with his 28-year-old nephew and son of developer Joseph Moinain, Matthew Moinian, to transform a vacant lot at 525 Greenwich Street in Soho into a $60 million hotel, he told The Real Deal today. Construction will begin on the project before the end of the year, he said.

    Matthew, who recently graduated from law school, has not joined the family business but is rather investing in the project as an individual.

    Fortuna, which bought the former parking garage site for $12.75 million at auction earlier this year, is in negotiations with various management systems to operate the hotel, Morris said, including the InterContinental brand, which operates Fortuna’s Hotel Indigo in Chelsea.  … [more]

  • Morris Moinian at The Real Deal’s offices

    Hotel Indigo, the colorful 122-room newcomer to the Chelsea scene, may soon get a trio of siblings to the north, south and east.

    Hotel owner Morris Moinian, 48 — not to be confused with his older real estate developer brother, Joseph, 55 — unveiled the newly-constructed 127 West 28th Street hotel, part of the InterContinental brand, in October, and is now plotting three more Indigo-franchised hotels in Manhattan over the next three to four years, he told The Real Deal yesterday in an in-office interview.

    Moinian is president and founder of Fortuna Realty Group, the private real estate company that developed the Dylan Hotel (sold to the HOTUSA Group and Losan Hotels World for $78 million in 2007) and has holdings in New York City, Florida, California and the Caribbean. The Iranian developer said he’s eyeing Tribeca-Soho, the Upper East Side, and Midtown, near Grand Central Terminal, for Indigo’s next landing spots. Ideally, the hotels will be built from the ground up, with 100 to 150 units apiece, he said. … [more]

  • Things are looking up for the New York City hotel industry, which is
    celebrating a rebound in occupancy from earlier this year. Manhattan
    was the only market in the country, besides New Orleans, to report a
    double-digit occupancy, up 10.5 percent this year to 88.1 percent,
    according to data from Smith Travel Research for the week ending Dec.
    12. While hotel occupancy in Manhattan has risen dramatically from levels
    as low as 55 percent, the average daily rate continues to be lower than
    record levels achieved in 2007. Nevertheless, the increase in occupancy represents a significant
    improvement to a market where more than 30 new hotels have opened
    during the year. Many of these new limited-service and boutique hotels,
    including Hotel Indigo, Ace Hotel and Crosby Street Hotel, have registered occupancy at nearly 90 percent. From a national perspective, travelers are going to have it good next year. … [more]
