A Curious Connection to an Untimely Death

In March 2012, Hudson was buzzing with the rumor that the Ace Hotels was interested in acquiring the Pocketbook Factory to convert it into one of their hip and unconventional boutique hotels. Yesterday, the Huffington Post reported that Alex Calderwood, the co-founder of the Ace Hotel chain, had died in London at the age of 47. Neither the Huffington Post article nor the obituary that appeared in the New York Times on Sunday indicates the circumstances of his death.

  1. What are the details of the North Front St. "Hudson River Lofts" near the former Fugary site?
    I drove past there today a saw signs in the hay bales.
    I was told that the man that owned Etsy is the owner of the former factory bldg. & is converting the bldg. into lofts.
    Is this true?
