Vertical construction is moving full steam ahead on the 42-story, 452-key EDITION hotel (by Marriott) under development at 701 Seventh Avenue. That’s on the corner of West 47th Street in the heart of Times Square. The progress can be seen thanks to a photo posted to the YIMBY Forums. The tower, dubbed 20 Times Square, will rise 517 feet above street level and will contain 269,769 square feet of commercial space, according to the latest building permits. Retail space will be located on two cellar levels and the ground through fourth floors. Actual hotel rooms will be located on the 14th through 40th floors.

The project’s base will also be enclosed on two sides by an 18,000-square-foot LED sign. Witkoff, Ian Schrager Company, Winthrop Realty Trust, and Maefield Development are the developers. Platt Byard Dovell White Architects (PBDW Architects) is behind the architecture. Completion is expected in 2017.

  1. The progress is growing in Times Square with, 42-story running to the air for hotel rooms. (by Marriott)

  2. Nice building, looks like it will fit into existing surrounding of our Crossroad of The World, Times Square, when it’s got to be finished. Also a new 4 story retail building on corner of 48th street and Seventh Avenue is almost finished now, with tall narrow billboard, like this one on American Eagle Store.

  3. Nice middle level skyscraper, with a huge billboard, very simular to existing surrounding of Times Square, don’t forget 4 story retail building almost wrapped up on next corner of 48th street.

  4. The New Times Square, and with that building finished up in 2018, it will looks like another Las Vegas Strip, only is missing are casinos, it would be nice if 2 existing casinos in New York City area, Empire and Resort World, would open shuttle offices there too. For free bus shuttle and casino vouchers. At least for late night/early morning departures, when existing traffic is usually dying there. Or just for advertising.
