Ritz Carlton Continues to Rise at 1185 Broadway in NoMad

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 MarriottRitz 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.

  1. Those frames looks to be ready made for pigeon nesting.

      Right?!
      I really like the horizontal fins that adds some much needed texture to a nearly all glass box. But those protected ledges! Over the years, crud will collect and weeds will start to grow. It actually could look cool, in a post global warming way.

  2. Puttin on the Ritz..seriously though, I like this building.

  3. Beautiful building, but how are the 2 trees on top expected to survive with the elements? I guess it will result in alot of leaves blowing off 40 floors to the street below?

    • Um, have you ever seen a mountain? Old mountain ranges much higher than 400 feet above sea level
      are covered in trees. You should get out of the city more. You’d be surprised to find that trees grow in places other than sidewalk planters at street level. 😉

      • I’m quite familiar with trees in the mountains, but there aren’t 40-story hotels on them either! I meant how does the Ritz plan to maintain these two luscious green trees in planters, with strong winds, rain, and blizzard snow? I would guess the foilage won’t last through the first month, and these will become 2 stately dried “tumbleweed” trees!
