Construction of a new 46-story, dual-brand Marriott hotel at 140 West 28th Street in Manhattan is now topped out. Designed by Gene Kaufman Architects for the McSam Hotel Group, the structure stands 470 feet above Chelsea with exterior cladding that resembles a single, continuous metal panel.

The development is on schedule to debut in 2020 as both a Towne Place and Springhill Suites with a total of 531 guest rooms. A portion of these suites will include private terraces.

Additional building components for the hotel include a fitness center, meeting rooms, a dining room with an outdoor terrace, and two separate lobbies. The building will also contain a new public arcade.

When complete the building will comprise just over 173,000 square feet.
