The Hip Hop Hall of Fame unveils new complex
The Hip Hop Hall of Fame (HHHOF) unveiled this month plans for a 'State of the Art' Hip Hop Hall of Fame + Museum & Hotel Entertainment Complex in Manhattan, in New York City.
Modeled after the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame Museum, the complex will include the Hall of Fame, Museum, 5 Star Hotel, Retail Stores & Gift Shop, Arcade, TV Studios, Sports Bar, Restaurant & Concert Lounge.
HHHOF has narrowed its site selection to two choices in Manhattan. The development team anticipates completing the building site acquisition process by early 2017 with its partners. The next phase will include making preparations for completing the exterior and interior design infrastructure process for a projected 2019-20 grand opening in Manhattan.
HHHOF goal is to serve up to 1,000,000 local, national, and international visitors annually at the complex. Currently, HHHOF has a very unique, diverse, and loyal targeted global audience that consist of youth demographics ages 12-34, and their families 25-55 who spend and influence approximately $1 Trillion dollars per year according to Russell Simmons advertising agency, on products, services, events, merchandise, and technology.
"We are pleased that the Hip Hop Hall of Fame Museum & Hotel Building project is moving forward and that it will have a major socio-economic impact on tourism, culture, education, live events, film & television production and broadcasting, and job creation in New York City," says JT Thompson, the creator and executive producer of the Hip Hop Hall of Fame Awards TV show that aired on BET Cable Network in the 90s, and Founder of the Hip Hop Hall of Fame + Museum, in a news statement.
The selected architectural & engineering firms, building contractors, and exhibit design firms will be on the ground floor to design the flow of the museum, hotel, offices, retail stores, floors, exhibits, and entertainment attractions in association with HealyKohler Design the creative building and exhibit design consultant on the project led by Terrance Healy.
