Construction is approaching the final floors of the NoMad Ritz Carlton Hotel. Located at 1185 Broadway at the northern intersection of West 28th Street, the reinforced concrete structure will soon top out at 580 feet tall, yielding 150,000 square feet and 250 guest rooms. The 40-story skyscraper is designed by Rafael Vinoly and developed by Marriott, Ritz Carlton Hotels, and Flag Luxury Properties. The interiors are being designed by Yabu Pushelberg.
Work has moved swiftly since YIMBY’s last update in September, when the first few floors above the podium were still being formed. At this rate, construction could likely top out in early spring or late March, assuming no delays from inclement weather conditions.
Photos of the southern corner show the protruding framework that covers the edges of the floor slabs. The hotel rooms will feature floor-to-ceiling windows, giving guests clear views down Broadway toward Madison Square Park and the iconic Flatiron Building, and uptown toward the Empire State Building. Amenities include a spa, a fitness center, bicycle parking, a public ground-floor restaurant with a bar, and a rooftop bar. The 28th Street subway station is directly in front of the property with access to the R and W trains.
The Ritz Carlton is expected to be finished in 2021.
