Milner Hotel To Be "The Ashley" After Switch To Luxury Apts

New, 16 comments

We've known that the Milner Hotel would be converted to apartments ever since workers spilled the beans last September, but Crain's now has some new details straight from the horse's mouth/building owner Matt Lester. The new development will consist of 50 "high-end, luxury" units in a range of sizes (Studios, 1,2, and 3-bedrooms, as well as penthouses). After the switch, the building will be rebranded as "The Ashley," which is quite a feminine turn after spending most of its existence named after founder Earle Milner. The conversion to apartments doesn't look like too much of a stretch - many units had kitchens already installed. Anticipated opening is next fall.
