Work is continuing on The Fifth Avenue Hotel, an addition and renovation at 250 Fifth Avenue in NoMad. Designed by Perkins Eastman, PBDW Architects, and Martin Brudnizki Design Studio and developed by Flaneur Hospitality, the project involves the construction of a 230-foot-tall, 24-story structure and the renovation and conversion of an adjacent 115-year-old bank building designed by McKim, Mead & White.
Excavation is getting deeper at 451 Tenth Avenue in Hudson Yards, site of a 580-foot-tall mixed-use skyscraper from Handel Architects. Bryan Cho of Related Companies filed permits in early June 2019 for the 44-story building, which will rise directly to the north of 66 Hudson Boulevard, Bjarke Ingels‘ supertall known as The Spiral. A great deal of earth has been excavated from the lot, a former parking lot located between West 35th and 36th Streets and Tenth Avenue and Hudson Boulevard. Spitzer Enterprises is co-developing alongside Related.
The brick envelope of 292 Fifth Avenue is reaching the final stories of the 21-story mixed-use hotel. Designed by Gene Kaufman Architect and developed by Sam Chang, the project is located between West 30th and 31st Streets on the border of both Koreatown and NoMad. The property is set to yield 16 residential units and a hotel operated by Le Meridien.
Construction is approaching street level at 450 Eleventh Avenue in Hudson Yards, site of a 487-foot-tall, 531-room hotel. A good deal of progress has occurred since site YIMBY’s update last October, when excavation was just wrapping up and the foundations walls were still being formed. Designed by DSM Design Group, developed by Marx Development Group, and due to operate under Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, 450 Eleventh Avenue is located between West 36th and 37th Streets, directly across from the Jacob K. Javits Center.
Scaffolding and black netting shrouds nearly all of 685 Fifth Avenue in preparation for a 100,000-square-foot office-to-condominium conversion. The project will also add ten floors atop the existing 20-story structure, which sits at the corner of Fifth Avenue and 53rd Street. Developed by Michael Shvo’s SHVO in partnership with BLG Holdings and Deutsche Financial, the finished building will stand 350 feet tall and contain 69 condominiums managed by Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group. Marin is the architect of record and designer for the $135 million project with March & White handling the interior designs. Brookfield Properties is in charge of marketing the Fifth Avenue retail space, which is still home to the Coach, Stuart Weitzman, and Tag Heuer flagship stores.
