POP UP HOTEL

POPUPHOTEL400x400POP UP HOTEL

Manhattan’s Midtown is in a real estate crisis.

Office vacancies are high, rents have been plummeting, and tenants are moving to New Jersey. A combination of outdated building stock, the economic recession, and a lack of amenities in the neighborhood have transformed Midtown from a vibrant business hub into an area of post-recession decline. The design of the Midtown Pop-Up Hotel focuses on the transformation of empty Class A office spaces into hospitality spaces.

The Pop-Up Hotel is designed to be a means of urban revitalization, an economic catalyst, as well as an active community partner. We strongly believe the Pop-Up Hotel to be a transformative experience for both the building and more importantly, the hotel guests.

Location: Midtown, Manhattan

Midtown is having an office vacancy crisis:

The opportunity comes in the form of TOURISM:

Combining the problem of High Vacancies with the opportunity of High Tourism to create a new hospitality experience…

…from drab office space to PopUp Hotel!

Like ordering from a restaurant menu, one can pick and choose from a wide variety of experiences…

Everything the hotel needs is easily packed and shipped on site with our very own Modular shipping containers!

ID Box = Interior Design / Identity Box!

Each box has an RF-ID tag to allow for tracking of the boxes as well as allowing for easy setup…

Imagine seeing 36 colorful boxes rolling through your neighborhood!
