Years ago there had been talk of it going condo, but I guess that died for one reason or another. Maybe another chain will see the (hopeful) success of the new Hampton and take advantage of the Van Antwerp in the near future.
I have always wished for that as well. I do think the building is about 75% occupied, though. Hey - Maybe a W will put a hotel in there!
