Where will the city that never sleeps be sleeping? As Steven Sclaroff's 90-room 6 Columbus property for Thompson Hotels nears completion, the same investor is working with Dodd Mitchell Design to construct the Thompson Lower East Side, with 100 guest rooms and 32 condominiums. Meanwhile, the Rockwell Group's 90-room Downtown Hotel, rumored to belong to Robert De Niro, is going up in a former parking lot. Still on the boards is the much anticipated New York arrival of the Standard hotel concept by André Balazs Properties; Polshek Partnership Architects has brought on Christian Liaigre for the interiors. And the Donald wants a piece of the action, of course. He's got his eye on David Rockwell, who's already drawn up renderings for the 42-story Trump SoHo Hotel and Condominium, pending zoning approval.
