After months of silence, there's reason to believe the Wurlitzer Building is still on track to revival as a boutique hotel. This rendering just appeared with a notice from the DEGC Brownfield Redevelopment Authority advertising an upcoming hearing. In short, a developer has applied to get the Wurlitzer designated as a brownfield, thereby making it eligible for certain tax credits and incentives.
The notice doesn't name the applicant, but it's almost certainly ASH NYC, the company that, last we heard, had the Wurlitzer under contract for $1.1M. They see the abandoned, brick-dropping Wurlitzer as a perfect boutique hotel conversion, which seems to be what the rendering shows. We'll update when more info is available.
