The six-story office and retail building on this site was home to the Rizzoli Bookstore from 1985 until 2014, when owners Vornado Realty Trust and the LeFrak Organization won a battle with local activists who had sought to have the 1920 edifice declared a landmark. The owners have announced plans to demolish the 17,160-square-foot building, replacing it with a seven-star hotel. Originally designed as a showroom for Sohmer Pianos, the Rizzoli building is on a lot next to Chickering Hall, former home of another piano maker, at 29 West 57th.

Vornado and LeFrak bought the Rizzoli building for $24.6 million in 2006, around the time they also bought Chickering Hall and properties at 49 and 50 West 57th Street.
