Rolston is teaming with the sbe’s development arm Dakota Development and Los Angeles-based Avenue Interior Design on the hotel’s redesign. The Redbury New York will incorporate elements of the “Tin Pan Alley” into the property's design.

Marta, Union Square Hospitality’s existing restaurant concept, will remain open on the hotel’s ground floor. The restaurant has an open kitchen with two wood-burning ovens and an open-fire grill. The property will also share amenities with sbe’s SLS Park Avenue hotel that’s scheduled to debut this summer. There will also be shared meetings and events spaces.
