“The NoMad Hotel” Planned In Big Apple

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

New York, NY

New York City-based GFI Development Company is pleased to announce plans for a new luxury property called The NoMad Hotel in one of the last nameless neighborhoods in Manhattan. The renovated hotel will be the first to open as LEED-certified and will bring a new identity to this currently unidentified area in the heart of New York. The opening is slated for Fall 2009.

Standing for ‘North of Madison Square’ and located in the Madison Square North Historic District, the ‘NoMad’ area consists of upscale residences, retail shops, creative agencies and renowned restaurants. Intersected by Broadway, Fifth and Madison Avenues, this district will now add a new high-end luxury hotel to its roster. Drawing upon the building’s 19th French Renaissance architecture, The NoMad Hotel will be decorated by internationally-acclaimed interior designer Jacques Garcia and will feature a chic French Bohemian décor. The twelve-story Kentucky limestone property will be including 160 oversized guest rooms and 11 suites, each with an open, ‘loft-like’ feel that includes wood floors, high ceilings and extra large windows, allowing an abundance of natural light into each room, many of which will have views of the Empire State Building. GFI has engaged Stonehill & Taylor as architects for the project.

“This is an exciting time for GFI Development Company and a great opportunity to transform an overlooked neighborhood,” says Michael A. Rawson, President, GFI Hotel Company and NoMad Hotels. “We believe the abundance of landmark buildings, the diversity of creative businesses, and the overall energy in this historic neighborhood will allow The NoMad Hotel to inspire change in an area coming into its own, while preserving and restoring many of the buildings’ historic elements, blending the old with the new. We look forward to helping establish a name for this thriving community and making The NoMad Hotel a desirable and sought-after destination for visitors and residents alike.”
