Permits have been filed for a 34-story hotel building at 150 West 48th Street in Midtown, Manhattan. Located between Sixth Avenue and Seventh Avenue, the lot is steps from the 47-50 Streets Rockefeller Center subway station, serviced by the B, D, F, and M trains and the 49th Street station, serviced by the N, R, and W trains. Hotel developer Sam Chang of McSam Hotel Group is listed as the owner behind the applications, after paying $140 million to purchase the property earlier this year.
McSam Hotel Group will break ground in January on a new Marriott Hotel property in Times Square. Located at 223 West 46th Street between Broadway and Eighth Avenue, the 200-key Marriott SpringHill is designed by Gene Kaufman Architects and replaces a former parking lot.
Construction is progressing quickly on the 46-story, dual-brand Marriott Hotel at 140 West 28th Street in Chelsea. Installation of the windows on the northern and southern elevations of the topped-out structure is almost entirely completed, and work should begin soon on the metallic cladding that will cover the remainder of the curtain wall. The 470-foot-tall tower is designed by Gene Kaufman Architect for the McSam Hotel Group and will contain 173,000 square feet of newly built space. Omnibuild is in charge of the construction, and its banner is displayed over the building’s future entrance along West 28th Street.
