A landmarked Hell’s Kitchen hotel that had become a refuge for vagrants and squatters will get an overhaul and be converted to a 175-room boutique hotel, according to its owner.

The Windermere, a nine-story Queen Anne-style building at West 57th Street and Ninth Avenue, will also feature an outdoor rooftop space, and 28 percent of the building will be converted to permanent affordable housing units, owner Mark Tress told DNAinfo.

The area’s Community Board 4 has responded favorably to the proposal, saying in a letter to the Landmarks Preservation Commission last week that “we find the proposed work for the most part praiseworthy and welcome, especially after the building’s long history of neglect and decay,” according to DNAinfo.

The renovation plan will require the consent of the Landmarks Preservation Commission, as well as the Department of City Planning and the Department of Buildings. [DNAinfo]  – Hiten Samtani
