Construction has topped out on the 28-story mixed-use building under development at 577 Ninth Avenue, located between West 41st and 42nd streets in Hell’s Kitchen. Progress on the project, dubbed Pod Times Square, can be seen thanks to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums. The latest building permits indicate the structure encompasses 218,872 square feet and rises 300 feet to its main roof, or 363 feet to the top of its bulkhead.
There will be 25,000-square feet of retail across the cellar, ground, and second floors. The third through 28th floors will host a Pod Hotel (by BD Hotels), featuring 665 miniature hotel rooms and 45 rental apartments. Friedman Group and Landis Group are the developers. SLCE Architects is the architect of record and completion is expected in 2017.
