The glass curtain wall is closing in on the final floors of the Virgin Hotel at 1225 Broadway in NoMad. Designed by Stantec and developed by Lam Group, the 476-foot-tall tower will yield 460 hotel rooms and 90,000 square feet of retail within the podium. Sir Richard Branson of Virgin Group will be in charge of managing the 300,000-square-foot property.
Construction has topped out on Maverick, a two-building, 210-foot-tall residential project at 215 West 28th Street in Chelsea. Located between Seventh Avenue and Eighth Avenue, the 20-story development is designed by DXA Architects and being developed by HAP Investments, and consists of abutting buildings spanning over 300,000 square feet. The structurally identical reinforced concrete superstructures are addressed as 215-219 West 28th Street and 221-229 West 28th Street.
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 is moving along on Rose Hill, where the majority of the curtain wall has been installed on the northern elevation of the NoMad residential skyscraper. Only the upper floors, crown, and ground floor have yet to be enclosed in the tower’s signature Art Deco-inspired finish. Located at 30 East 29th Street between Madison Avenue and Park Avenue, Rose Hill stands 639 feet tall and will yield 123 condominiums marketed by CORE Real Estate. The 45-story building is designed by CetraRuddy Architecture for Rockefeller Group.
Installation of the glass curtain panels has begun on COOKFOX Architect’s 24-story Flatiron District project at 39 West 23rd Street. The topped out reinforced concrete superstructure rises along West 23rd Street between Fifth Avenue and Sixth Avenue, one of Manhattan’s busiest thoroughfares. Anbau Enterprises is the developer of the two-tower complex.
