News for the Hospitality Executive
|March 6, 2007 - Brack Capital Real Estate – USA has acquired
63-67 West 35th Street for $31 million from Icon Parking, it was announced
by Moshe Azogui, CEO of Brack USA. Mr. Azogui said he plans to develop
an upscale hotel with 300 rooms in the heart of bustling midtown south.
The site, on the north side of West 35th Street between Fifth and Sixth Avenues in Herald Square, is currently occupied by a six-story parking garage.
“This prime site is centrally located with easy access to Grand Central Terminal and Penn Station (and the planned Moynihan Station) and close to such New York icons as the Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building, Macy’s, Madison Square Garden, Bryant Park and Times Square,” Mr. Azogui said. “It is an ideal spot for attracting both business executives and tourists,” he said. Construction is expected to start immediately.
Eastern Consolidated’s Brian Ezratty, Vice Chairman, and Scott Ellard, Director, represented both Brack Capital Real Estate and the seller, Darryl Mallah of Icon Parking.
“The price attained for 63-67 West 35th Street is commensurate with the pricing achieved for other such centrally-located Midtown properties with development potential,” said Mr. Ezratty. “Zoned to accommodate any type of residential or commercial development, the new buyer’s choice of hotel use should bode well at a time when there is a distinct dearth of hospitality properties in the City.”
Brack Capital Real Estate – USA, which owns and manages a number
of developments in New York and Florida, is known for its meticulous restoration
and renovation of the majestic 90 West Street, the Cass Gilbert designed
