A new $19 million boutique-style hotel for Nyack that is near the site of a brush fire April 22 is back on track for re-development.
The fire was considered accidental and under control after 30 minutes. Nyack fire officials had said it might have been ignited by workers at the construction site, but were not sure. One village firefighter reportedly hurt his back at the scene.
Highground Industrial has been selected to demolish the internal structure of the old industrial building near Nyack’s downtown area. The former 4-story factory is being rebuilt to house a 132-room loft-style hotel. It is walking distance from the Hudson River and downtown Nyack as well as convenient to the New York Thruway.
“We are pleased to have been selected by NYLO Hotels. It is very exciting to be a part of a project which renews old factories to create new usable updated space,” David Hoehmann, President of Highground Industrial LLC said in a recent press release. “These old multilevel factories are not considered efficient for manufacturing. So they are either being renovated and re-purposed like this one or torn down.”
The hotel will be managed by NYLO Hotels and in addition to overnight rooms will features a steakhouse, radio station and conference center, as reported last week by The Journal News/lohud.com. The developer is WY Management LLC.
The warehouse was previously occupied by Stoffel Seals Corp., a plastics and metal manufacturer.
A zoning variance was needed to add two floors to the existing structure and because the area is zoned as a manufacturing district, a special permit was also needed and received.
