    Sadly, when I was in NYC a few weeks ago, several Hyatt folk told me that the hotel won't make it to completion this year. It sounds like the hotel is being located where the Salisbury (owned by the church next door) was, is that the case? If so, it will be directly competing with the Beanie Baby FS a few hundred yards away -- and not a moment too soon!

    For some reason, I thought this wasn't the first time that we hear about the PH NYC rumor.

    While I'm a big fan of the Park Hyatt brand, I feel like adding PH to the list of Hyatt hotels in the area would result in the creation of "category 7" hotels.

    Thanks for the correction. I stayed in the Salisbury once a million years ago and especially liked the note in the room that the owner (the church) didn't want any booze on premisses.

    Apparently they have to raise another crane next to it just to get that one down! Certainly going to delay the hotel's completion, the question is by how much.

    Oh dear, cranes are wildly expensive to erect and maintain.

    Makes me wonder what aspects of this are insured - it obviously depends on the policy terms, but I wonder of those terms merely provide for replacement or if consequential losses, such as the cost of late delivery of the project, are insured as well.

    I'm also a bit troubled that the facade is not complete - typically "sealing the building up" must occur prior to the commencement of any interior finishes, as those finishes can be compromised if the building is not sealed.

    Makes me think the project was already suffering delays.
