Uniondale Marriott Hotel on Long Island in Foreclosure

foreclosure assistance for homeownersOne of Long Island’s largest hotels has had a foreclosure lawsuit initiated against it. The Long Island Marriott Hotel and Conference Center located in Uniondale, New York is in foreclosure. The hotel is owned by the New York Islanders’ owner, Charles Wang.

The financial institution that loaned the New York Islanders and Charles Wang $103,000,000 in 2007 has brought a foreclosure proceeding in the Supreme Court in Nassau County located in Mineola, New York.

It is estimated the amount owed on the mortgage loan on the Marriott Hotel is more than $125,000,000. The hotel had been valued in the year 2010 at approximately $150,000,000. In a recent appraisal, it was valued at $63.4 million.

Mr. Wang had initially purchased the hotel in 2005 from Marriott. He took this action as part of his Lighthouse plan to revitalize the area around the Nassau County Coliseum. In 2007, Scott Rechler of RXR Realty purchased the hotel. He was a partner of Wang with regard to the project. The Lighthouse Project which was proposed to revitalize the area around the hotel never came to fruition. Eventually, Wang bought the hotel back from Scott Rechler.

Wang had proposed to Nassau County they fund the renovation of the Coliseum. However, when this was submitted through a referendum, the voters in Nassau County voted it down. In 2012, the New York Islanders announced they were moving to the Barclays Center in Brooklyn and they would be permanently leaving Nassau County.

In 2013, Nassau County Executive Mangano entered into an agreement with Bruce Ratner, whom he had selected to renovate the Coliseum.
