Page Six confirmed that master hotelier Andre Balazs will be turning the Cooper Square Hotel into another Standard Hotel. The second NYC Standard will be more “intimate and residential” than the rather flamboyant Standard Hotel in the Meatpacking District.
The verdict is not yet out on Balazs’ intentions regarding the beloved rooftop concerts that the Cooper Square Hotel is known for. The famed hotel mogul made headlines earlier this week after breaking up with E! funny girl Chelsea Handler.
