Sheraton-Lincoln Plaza Tower to get 100 Mil Renovation


Recommended Posts

That article said that the Sheraton was to be made into a "luxury" hotel? I thought that Sheraton Hotels have always been classified as "luxury." AARP classifies them as "upscale."

"Upscale" is probably the appropriate term for Sherarton - they are very nice, but Starwood has the Westin, W, and St Regis brands for the "luxury" niche

I have been by a few days ago. If there is work being done, I haven't seen any evidence of it.

The project is still in a holding pattern. They are waiting on Financing. The projected start date is Jan. 09.

I haven't noticed any activity here - not like at the old Days Inn. It looks like they're gutting the innerds.

The innards have been pre-gutted for your renovation convenience. The building is pretty much nothing but a steel frame and concrete floorplates.

Wrong topic, I know, but what kind of asbestos issues are there with the old Days Inn? Does anybody know?

I saw them working on some type of plumbing for the building this weekend. They had the entire right lane of Louisiana closed off near the building.

I'm surprised there's any plumbing in there left to work on, unless it is the drainage pipes for the underground parking garage.

Saw this building in a photo in another thread, but didn't recognize it.  Checked Google time machine street view - looks like it was demolished in April 2011.  Either the financing fell through because of the recession or the building was in bad condition (there was some mentioning of the facade falling off).  Anyway - it's a surface lot now and entrance to the other building on the block.  Hope something goes up there someday :/
