The Luxury Boutique Hotel Paramount New York Gets A New Owner

NewYork 09-189-20091014

The Paramount Hotel is a legend in the world of luxury boutique hotels in New York. Originally built in 1928 (on a design by Thomas W. Lamb) – it’s seen some of New Yorks most exciting times. In 1990 the hotel reopened after a remodelling period, and with new ownership. No other than Ian Schrager, with design help from Philippe Starck.

In 2004 Schrager sold the hotel for $126 million to Sol Melia Hotels and Resorts.

Now it’s been sold for $275 million. The new owner? Aby Rosen, who among other things also owns the Seagram Building and Lever House.
