Chetrits Mull Hotel North of Empire State Building

The enigmatic Chetrits, who abandoned a plan to convert the International Toy Center building to condos last year, seem to be planning a hotel three blocks north of the Empire State Building.

The Chetrit Group has filed an application for a building permit that lists a planned 29-story hotel at 6 East 37th Street, a site adjacent to the column-lined former Tiffany & Co. building at 401 Fifth Avenue, also owned by the Chetrits.

The group paid $9 million for the five-story commercial building on the site four years ago, picking it up from Stahl Real Estate, according to property records.

The Chetrits, notoriously press-shy, did not return requests for comment.
