Standard East Village to Be ‘More Mellow’

Following the Post’s report that Andre Balazs is transforming the Cooper Square Hotel into The Standard East Village, a cheeky post on The Standard’s blog makes it official. “Don’t get too excited though!” writes one Stan d’Arde. “Unlike The Standard, New York, this East side counterpart, located on the corner of East 5th Street and Bowery at Cooper Square, is going to be a more mellow alternative to all the boom in your West side room.”
