Located on the south side of the block between Eighth Avenue and Broadway, the interior lot has 80 feet of street frontage and houses a commercial building built in 1907. Components currently consist of retail space on the ground floor and office space on the levels above.

No new construction plans have been disclosed for the property, however as recently as 2018, several permits were filed for a new hotel development ranging between 19 and 24 floors. More recent new build permits show Gorjian Real Estate Group as the owner, and further detail a Class A office building designed by Morris Adjmi Architects with 150,000 square feet of workable space, 16-foot ceilings, and a rooftop terrace. The above rendering illustrates this concept, but it is unclear if those plans are still in the works.

244-250 West 49th Street is steps from the 50th Street subway station, serviced by the C and E trains. Also within walking distance to the east is the 49th Street station, serviced by the N, R, and W trains.

McLaren Engineering Group is listed as the applicant of record.
