Curbed swung by the London Guarantee Building to see how to old 21 story Beaux Arts tower is doing, and it is giving every indication that it is ready for its new life as a hotel. Proudly displaying its permits like badges, the Alfred Alschuler designed landmark was purchased by Oxford Capital last summer, who indicated plans to turn the building into a lifestyle boutique hotel with two levels of retail. Details on the final room count and amenities is still largely unknown, however judging from the notice posted to the window of the front of the building, it appears that the building will contain 450 hotel rooms, along with offices, retail and meeting spaces. Once completed, the hotel will join a slew of other downtown vintage-towers-turned-swanky-hotels.
