West Palm Beach, Fla. (November 10, 2022) – BD Hotels, founded by Richard Born and Ira Drukier, and Sean MacPherson join NDT Development, Place Projects, and Wheelock Street Capital to develop and operate a hotel on North Railroad Avenue in the Nora District.

Born, Drukier, and MacPherson are collectively behind some of New York City’s most iconic hotels like The Bowery, The Jane, The Ludlow, and The Maritime. In 2016, the trio, in partnership with Wheelock Street Capital, took over the historic Chelsea Hotel, which recently reopened.

The partners are well-known for implementing timeless designs and strong culinary programs to go with top-notch hospitality. Many of their hotels are credited for driving culture and helping spark revitalization in previously underdeveloped and overlooked areas of Manhattan.
