Shoreham hotel in Midtown purchased

May 04, 2021

NEW YORK, May 4, 2021 – JLL Hotels & Hospitality announced today that it has closed the sale of Shoreham, a 179-key boutique hotel located in Midtown, Manhattan, just minutes from both Central Park and the 5th Ave. shopping corridor. The sale represents the fifth asset JLL Hotels & Hospitality has advised on in New York City since September 2020.

JLL represented the seller to complete the sale to a private buyer. The property was offered fully unencumbered of brand management and the buyer plans to continue operations as a hotel.

The Shoreham totals 89,681 square feet and features a fitness center, business center and is pet-friendly. The hotel also includes over 2,000 square feet of meeting space and a restaurant, Aqua 55 and benefits not only from its location, but also from proximity to various perennial demand drivers, being situated near multiple theaters, the Rockefeller Center and leading office tenants, including Fortune 500 companies, financial institutions and media companies.

New York City has shown resilience throughout the pandemic, historically being one of the fastest cities to recovery following an economic downturn. The sale represents continued investor interest in the New York City recovery story and comes as travel and visitation headwinds surrounding Manhattan grow increasingly more positive by the week.

The JLL Hotels & Hospitality team representing the seller was led by Senior Managing Director Jeffrey Davis, Executive Vice Presidents KC Patel and Michele Mahl, Associate Nikhil Chuchra and Analyst Desmund Delaney.

“Manhattan remains a focal point for hospitality capital as transaction activity begins to gain momentum,” said Patel. “Strategically located on 55th and 5th Ave., the Shoreham Hotel will draw demand from all corners of the Midtown market.”
