Curtain wall installation is getting closer to completion on the Margaritaville Resort at 560 Seventh Avenue in Times Square. Designed by Stonehill Taylor and developed by Sharif El-Gamal of Soho Properties along with MHP Real Estate Services, the nearly $300 million project stands topped out at 29 stories on the corner of Seventh avenue and West 40th Street. The property will contain a total of 234 hotel rooms.
Façade work is nearing completion on the Virgin Hotel at 1225 Broadway in NoMad. Designed by Stantec and developed by Lam Group, the 38-story, 476-foot-tall structure will yield 300,000 square feet with 460 hotel rooms. Sir Richard Branson of Virgin Group will be in charge of managing the property, which is the first Virgin Hotel in New York City.
Construction has reached street level at 7-9 East 30th Street, a 227-foot-tall residential building from SWA Architecture in NoMad. Developed by Castellan Real Estate Partners, the 23-story structure will span 41,992 square feet, yielding 54 residences and 2,142 square feet of ground-level retail.
Work is several floors above street level and rising at 9 DeKalb Avenue, a 1,066-foot-tall residential skyscraper in Downtown Brooklyn. Designed by SHoP Architects and developed by JDS, 73-story structure will become the first supertall in Brooklyn and the outer boroughs.
Work has yet to begin at 75 West Broadway, aka 61 Warren Street, a ten-story, 120-foot-tall residential building in Tribeca. The property has sat relatively quiet since YIMBY checked in last summer. Located along West Broadway between Warren Street and Murray Street, the forthcoming project is designed by BKSK Architects and developed by Cape Advisors and Forum Absolute Capital Partners and is set to yield 55,000 square feet.
