Construction Update: CitizenM Hotel

Another day, another dreadful hotel reaching completion in Midtown. Budget hotels don’t have to be heinous, but the new CitizenM definitely conforms to the stereotype. The building is a simple box, and the sides leave much to be desired–blank walls are never acceptable, even if they will eventually be covered up. Once new towers go up adjacent to the hotel the design will prove fairly benign, but for the immediate future the building is sure to be an eyesore.
