Meatpacking District could shift with Standard

December 10, 2008 10:51AM

The Standard, Andre Balazs’ 18-story, 337-room hotel at the corner of
Washington and West 13th streets, is slated to open the first 150 guest
rooms later this month and to become fully operational by spring. The
hotel will be four stories taller and have nearly twice as many rooms
as the nearby Hotel Gansevoort. The owner of the Gansevoort, Richard
Born, predicts that the Standard will become the “Ground Zero of the
Meatpacking District,” and that it will be incredibly successful.
