What's going on at the LaGuardia Airport Hotel?
"SM ROUNDERS, LLC" was formed in January 2014.
In February 2014, STW LaGuardia LLC, located at the same address as SM Rounders, purchased the LaGuardia Airport Hotel for $20.5M.
In August 2014, STW applied for permits from the DOB to alter the building and change the C of O. Most noteworthy is that

2) the icing on the cake -
The plans were rejected by a plan examiner in October, but I'm sure it's only a matter of time before they get their ducks in a row and get approved for what looks very much like it may be an SRO.
The LaGuardia Airport Hotel's website is no longer active. It doesn't even say "coming soon".
Elected officials representing this property:
