The Landmarks Preservation Commission has approved proposals to renovate and redevelop a portion of the McGraw-Hill Publishing Company Building. Located in the Garment District at 330 West 42nd Street, the property was originally constructed in 1931 and is considered a landmarked example of Art Deco design in the built environment.
Excavation is moving along at 255 West 34th Street, a new 33-story, 330-room hotel just across from One Penn Plaza. The Chetrit Group is developing the Midtown site with Stonehill & Taylor Architects as the architect of record. Meanwhile a new rendering for the 155,594-square-foot development has been posted at the construction site, which is situated along the southern edge of the Garment District.
New renderings reveal the glossy, reimagined interiors of 554 Eighth Avenue, known today as 554 On the Eighth. Designed by Fogarty Finger Architecture for The Expansion Group, the renovation is specifically intended to attract tenants from the technology sector. The 21-story pre-war building is located on the southeast corner of Eighth Avenue and West 38th Street and contains approximately 325,000 square feet of commercial area.
Located between Penn Station and Times Square, Marriott International and developer Sam Chang have partnered on another high-rise hotel property in Midtown, Manhattan. The final product is currently under construction at 337 West 36th Street and is expected to top-off at 23 stories.
New York hotelier Sam Chang and Marriott International partnered in 2016 to introduce several new ground up hotels around the city. Now, construction on one of two dual-branded properties has picked up between Eighth and Ninth avenues, at 338 West 36th Street.
