The proposed rezoning region

The North Tribeca rezoning proposal that entered the city’s public review process last week could significantly curb development opportunities for mid-sized hoteliers through a restriction that allows the City Council to block any new project of that kind, according to the Observer. Meanwhile, similar rezoning proposals in the Garment District and in Industrial Business Zones are gaining traction amongst city officials. The push against boutique and limited-service hotels is led by the New York Hotel & Motel Trades Council, and its president, Peter Ward. The union has long been lobbying against the growth of this property type within the city, because their staffs are usually non-union and because they take business away from larger hotels that are a part of the union. The hope is that the City Council would require low-cost hotel developers — like Sam Chang, for one — to allow for unionization before giving them the go-ahead. [NYO]
