Behind the scenes at the Flatiron Hotel (1141 Broadway at 26th Street) appears to be a mess these days, according to an article in the Real Deal. It seems the debt holders of the property are fighting with the current owners and management company over rent payments.
What’s going on between the debt holders, the multiple owners, and the property management company is so confusing with the Supreme Court involved, direct rent payments requested, illegal scaffolding, and more allegations, that we suggest you read the Real Deal article for more info.
You may recall that the guy behind Hotel Toshi, actor, businessman and underground party hoster Robert ‘Toshi’ Chan, supposedly took over management of the newly created Flatiron Hotel a couple years back. You may also recall they have a 20,000 gallon aquarium in the lobby.
