Work is now underway on the 17th floor of the 35-story, 612-key DoubleTree by Hilton hotel under development at 350 West 40th Street, in the Garment District of Midtown. The developer — Sam Chang’s Great Neck, N.Y.-based McSam Hotel Group — also secured a $215 million mortgage to refinance existing debt and fund construction, Commercial Observer reported. The latest building permits, which YIMBY first reported on in early 2014, indicate the 328-foot-tall project will measure 199,664 square feet. The hotel rooms should average a budget-sized 290 square feet apiece. Guest amenities include a fitness center, storage for 18 bikes, a restaurant on the ground floor, and a rooftop lounge & bar. Gene Kaufman’s SoHo-based architectural firm is behind the design. Completion is expected later this year.

  1. In front of traffic with construction, but work in progress is safe for public at the bottom.

  2. I hope their fitness center has a swimming pool.
