The Landmarks Preservation Commission has approved a large-scale redevelopment project at 251-253 Fifth Avenue in NoMad, Manhattan. Led by TRA Studio Architecture, the project entails the demolition of a low-rise building at 253 Fifth Avenue, the construction of a new 20-story tower in its place, the restoration of a neighboring building at 251 Fifth Avenue, and the integration of both buildings into a singular structure.
A new Le Meridien Hotel at 292 Fifth Avenue is expected to reach full completion in October 2020. The 187-key hotel topped out at 21 stories in 2019 and is one of the latest projects developed in collaboration by McSam Hotel Group and Gene Kaufman Architect.
Proposals to demolish, renovate, and expand the neglected façade of 1177 Broadway are now under review by the Landmarks Preservation Commission. The project is located between West 27th Street and West 28th Street in the Madison Square North Historic District and will operate as a commercial property with ground-floor retail space and offices above.
A new rooftop bar and lounge at 234 Fifth Avenue may soon take shape in NoMad pending approvals from the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC). The five-story structure is located within the Madison Square North Historic District and currently functions as a co-working office managed by The Yard.
YIMBY checked in on 842 Sixth Avenue in NoMad, the site of what will become the world’s tallest modular hotel.
