Building hotels, not buying, to surge in Manhattan

Bloomberg Businessweek reports that constructing a hotel in New York City, rather than buying one, is becoming more affordable as demand from publicly traded investors helps drive a surge in property prices. Increased competition for purchases has led developers to plan the opening of about 50 new hotels this year through 2013 in New York.
