The hotel at 101 Garden Street (at the southwest corner of Yanonali) goes before the Historic Landmarks Commission this Wednesday. This is the first time we’ve seen detailed renderings and plans of the Garden Street Hotel, as it’s being called (at least for now). Designed by Cearnal Collective, the property is 250 rooms, 120 of which are standard and 130 of which are extended-stay.
As you can tell from the map I annotated, the lot runs from Yanonali down to the railroad tracks, hugging the buildings that house MichaelKate Interiors and the Waterline (Topa Topa, Lama Dog, the Nook, et al), and the P3 fitness studio. Five buildings will have to be demolished. I rotated the two floor-plan images at the bottom of the post so that north is at the top; if you prefer to see them as submitted, click here and here.
The plans show a “food prep” area, bar, lounge, and breakfast room, but not an actual restaurant, which is too bad; one hopes the property will be publicly accessible. And while I’m not an architect, and there may be a rationale I don’t understand, I wish the corners had more panache—to my mind, they’re where the eye naturally goes.
