Façade installation is nearing completion on the dual-brand Marriott Hotel at 140 West 28th Street in Chelsea. Designed by Gene Kaufman Architect for the McSam Hotel Group, the tower stands 470 feet tall and will contain 531 guest rooms spanning 173,000 square feet. Omnibuild is in charge of the construction process for the 46-story structure, which will house both a TownePlace Suites and a Springhill Suites.
Façade work is nearing completion at 305 West 48th Street, a 303-foot-tall hotel in Hell’s Kitchen. Designed by Gene Kaufman and developed by Bright Management with Rockwell Group as the interior designer, the structure stands 27 stories and will contain 211 hotel rooms. The project site is located at the corner of West 48th Street and Eighth Avenue, conveniently close to the Times Square and the Theater District.
Construction has topped out on 3 Sutton Place, an 847-foot-tall residential skyscraper at 430 East 58th Street in Midtown East. Designed by Thomas Juul-Hansen and developed by Gamma Real Estate with Stephen B. Jacobs Group as the executive architect, the 62-story tower will contain 121 residential units. The project site is located between Sutton Place South and First Avenue.
Exterior work is moving along at 12 East 48th Street, a 367-foot-tall Hilton Grand Vacation Hotel in Midtown East. The 125,000-square-foot tower is designed by Handel Architects and developed by Hidrock Realty and will contain 161 guest rooms. Desimone Consulting Engineers is the structural engineer, The Rinaldi Group is the general contractor, and IBA Consulting & Engineering, PLLC is the envelope consultant for the edifice.
Construction is set to resume at 50 West 66th Street, the soon-to-be tallest skyscraper on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Progress had been stalled on the 775-foot-tall residential tower until recently, when a joint venture was formed between Extell Development Company and global investment entity Tennor Holding B.V. to complete the project. Snøhetta is the designer of the 69-story structure, which will eventually eclipse the parapet of the neighborhood’s current title-holding skyscraper, 200 Amsterdam Avenue.
