The reinforced concrete structure of 140 West 24th Street is nearing the halfway mark in its rise to an imminent 45-story and 416-foot pinnacle. Gene Kaufman Architect is designing the new hotel, and Sam Chang is developing the 142,949 square foot structure. Besides the 508 hotel rooms, there will be a main lobby, a dining area, and kitchens on the cellar and first floors. The site is located in Chelsea, between Sixth and Seventh Avenue.
Recent photos from the vicinity show the tower making its way into the neighborhood skyline, and rising over the surrounding buildings.
Construction has been able to progress at a fast pace thanks to the regular pattern of columns and floor slabs.
This will be noticeably taller when topped-out, and will have perfect views of Lower Manhattan and the Empire State Building. The northern and southern elevations will have a narrow and tight grid of windows that will run up the entire height of the building. Two water towers will sit side by side to each other above the flat roof parapet.
The 1 train can be found on Seventh Avenue while the F, M and PATH train are located on Sixth Avenue.
A completion date for 140 West 24th Street has been posted on the green construction fence with a target date of Spring 2020. The building should most likely top out by the end of the summer.
