Hotelier Andre Balazs received approval for his overhaul of the Standard East Village Hotel from Manhattan Community Board 3, the Local East Village reported. There were neighborhood initiatives to protest the approval of the hotel’s liquor license, so the vote came only after last minute-negotiations were held between Balazs and residents of East Fifth Street.

Balazs agreed to erect a planter that would block residents’ view of the outdoor bar and would block some of its noise.

Eater reported that that the hotel revamp includes tacking the lobby onto the second-story garden space, which will bring 60 percent of the outdoor space indoors. There are also plans to construct a bar in the garden space, which will be 16 feet by eight feet in measurement and have 18 stools. All together, the project will add 1,000 square feet to the hotel, which is located at 25 Cooper Square near 5th Street.

Balazs indicated that this revamp is necessary for the hotel to gain profit. [Local EV] and [Eater]
