According to reports, J Hotels, will be a five-star luxury hotel with a flagship location in the heart of New York City's Chelsea District.

The $66.4 million dollar property, which was previously owned by RYLB Family Partnership LP, will be developed into a 150,000-square-foot hotel at 510 W. 22nd St. in the Chelsea neighborhood, between 10th and 11th avenues.

Jay-Z also plans to erect more J Hotels in other cities following the chainís New York debut.
