In the Spring of 2008, GFI Development acquired 1170 Broadway, located in New York City, with a view toward converting the landmarked building into a luxury hotel in the emerging NoMad district. Despite the Global Financial Crisis, the 133,000 square foot former office building was successfully converted into a premiere lifestyle hotel featuring 168 guestrooms, replete with double bay windows and views of the Empire State and surrounding flatiron buildings. The interiors are designed by internationally acclaimed designer, Jacques Garcia, who brings his unique take on contemporary, bohemian opulence while simultaneously preserving the building’s historic feel. The NoMad Hotel opened in the second quarter of 2012 and has received significant acclaim for its design and food & beverage led by Daniel Humm and Will Guidara, two of New York City’s top culinary talents.
