Although the rendering appears to date from April of last year or earlier, so hopefully it was merely conceptual.

As far as residential versus hotel, the upper 4 floors on this building total roughly 32,000 sf. Assuming roughly 25,000 sf net area subtracting the exterior walls, 2 stairwells, 2 elevators and 100' of corridor, you get an average unit size of 650 sf. That does sound like residential. Though I can't imagine them being that desirable when 70% of the units face into a 10' alley. This building made more sense as a boutique hotel in that regard.
Its being built as 39 residential units andd will be operated as an Airbnb hotel with a hotel license...
