Garry Barnett or Extell Development is planning a hotel at the site of the Wellington Hotel, a century-old building in New York, New York. The developer will renovate the hotel rather than construct another towering edifice near Central Park South. The proposed hotel, with 214,000 square feet of floor area across 27 stories, closely matches the existing structure. The hotel will include ground-floor retail and business amenities such as a banquet room, commercial kitchen and a lecture hall. Floors 8 to 27 will be used exclusively as a hotel. The Wellington Hotel closed about a year into the pandemic, following a brief period as a homeless shelter in 2018.
