Renovations are under way at the once-abandoned, palatial building at 5 Beekman Street, which will reopen as a 287-room hotel next summer complete with two restaurants and bars at street level. The same real-estate company that developed the NoMad and the Ace Hotel is behind the transformation, so speculation is that some pretty high-profile restaurateurs have taken the spaces. “You have that big hotel in the Wall Street area opening with Keith McNally and Tom Colicchio,” restaurateur Stephen Starr told Grub earlier this week, presumably talking about the Beekman.
