NoMad has been experiencing an incredible amount of construction over the last few years, especially for new hotels. Today, YIMBY has a look at 1225 Broadway, the future Virgin Hotel, which is being developed by the Lam Group. New images reveal that construction has now reached the tenth floor, surpassing the tower’s base, which will eventually create 100,000 square feet of retail space. The full footprint of the podium remains to be completed.
Our last update from 2017 reported construction had almost reached ground level. The latest progress photos reveal that foundation work for the hotel tower is finished. An official date has not been released, but topping-out is likely in a little over a year.
The 476-foot tall structure will yield 400,000 square feet, with 300,000 square feet dedicated to the hotel, and remaining area dedicated to the retail podium. The 38-story building will bring 460 guest rooms to the neighborhood.
VOA Associates will be responsible for the design.
