TriBeCa Associates is also planning to build a 13-story hotel with 114 rooms on the site of a two-story commercial building at 128 Chambers Street. According to documents filed with the city, that project will be designed by Brennan Beer Gorman.'s telephone calls to Mr. Brodsky and Mr. Byrns today were not returned.
