Changes coming to New York hotspot

Share Article

Bright Lights Business (BLB) expressed interest in how the Meatpacking District is changing as more retailers are starting to call the hotspot of New York nightlife home and some residents are wondering how the new high-end retailers will change the look and feel of the area.

BLB issued a statement outlining it's intrigue and concern over how the impending changes will affect the nightclub and restaurant filled district and the future of beloved eateries such as Pastis this week as the landlord prepares to renovate and expand the building that houses the restaurant to bring in new tenants.

The owners of the building that houses Pastis said that they are willing to work with the restaurant to keep them in place at an affordable rate but will go ahead with renovations in the rest of the building, including building it up, so that other retailers (such as Gucci, Louis Vuitton or Chanel) will have a place to open their doors in the Meatpacking District.

BLB hopes the style of the area will remain, offering a hotbed of restaurant and nightlife choices that are frequented by New Yorkers as well as many A-list celebrities. The desire is that the new high-end tenants will fit in with the feel of the area instead of changing it and will help bring even more people to the already popular district.

The Meatpacking District is considered one of the primary go-to areas of the city and celebrities are often seen hanging out at the many clubs and restaurants that can be found there. Mark Birnbaum helped build the atmosphere of the district when he opened several establishments in the area.

Changes are coming to New York's Meatpacking District as high-end retailers continue to set up shop and building owners look at renovating to attract these tenants. Area residents hope beloved eateries such as Pastis will be able to stick around and that the new retailers don't change the feel of the neighborhood too much.
