Construction Update: 325 West 33rd Street

Ugly new hotels are like termites in New York City, continually emerging out of the woodwork. The new Fairfield Inn & Suites at 325 West 33rd is no exception. Work on the project is just about finished, and the 239-room hotel will be opening in the first quarter of 2013.

Unfortunately, the project is–aesthetically–a total loss. Any exercise in creativity was extricated during the design process (aka value engineered), and the result is a boxy building fit for Mombasa, not Manhattan. Evidently the project’s developers had the building incorporate the worst elements of design circa 1985. If that was their goal, they should be congratulated on a smashing success.
