You may have seen the signs around the city for ‘Hotel Toshi‘, which basically is a network of apartments for short-term rental in non-traditional apartment spaces. Well the Real Deal now reports that the guy behind Hotel Toshi, Robert ‘Toshi’ Chan, made an offer to buy the brand new but never opened Flatiron Hotel (1141 Broadway at 26th Street).

The Flatiron Hotel was finished in April and ready for occupancy…but immediately put on the market for sale. It is said to feature 64 rooms, a lobby with a 20,000 gallon aquarium (see photo left), space for a restaurant, and has a 200 square foot rooftop ready for a lounge.

Originally it appeared to be a Meyer Jabara hotel. The location is prime considering the continued growth of the Madison Square Park area. The rooms are said to be delivered turnkey with ‘jacuzzi bath or Swiss rainfall showers, surround sound entertainment systems, LCD tvs,  marble bathrooms’, and the hotel apparently can be ready to open within 30 days of closing.

Hotel Toshi has stated on their website that they will also be opening their first permanent hotel in the East Village in September.
