After years of complaints and Department of Buildings violations, Joseph Stavrach, head of Triangle Assets, has decided to tear down and replace Midtown’s seedy United Nations Apartment Hotel.

The developer filed plans with the city to replace the four-story, 22,000-square-foot hotel, at 302 East 45th Street, with a three-story residential building with ground floor retail.

ODA is listed on the architect of record.

The hotel has received numerous complaints from guests over the years, including for squalid conditions, cockroaches and theft. It’s also been the subject of numerous DOB investigations for unauthorized alterations and an expired certificate of occupancy, DNAinfo reported.
