308 West 40th Street

21-Story, 60-Room Hotel Filed At 308 West 40th Street, Midtown West

Roughly a year ago, YIMBY reported on applications for a mysterious 13-story commercial building at 308 West 40th Street in the Garment District. Now, new permits have been filed for a 21-story, 60-key hotel. It appears the project has changed hands since last year, with Bing Chui — doing business as 308 Realty Holding LLC — listed as the owner,. Noel Wong’s Long Island-based ADB Associates is the architect of record, and the hotel will measure just 17,410 square feet, rising on a 25-foot-wide lot. Rooms will average 290 square feet each, and an old tenement building was demolished in 2013.

Four-Story, 51-Key Hotel Planned At 38-22 28th Street, Long Island City

Applications for a hotel development date as far back as 2012 at 38-22 28th Street, in northern Long Island City, but the developer — Long Island-based Amit Veeramachaneni — has since withdrawn those and filed for fresh permits. The hotel will rise four stories and contain 51 rooms, which will spread across 14,036 square feet, averaging 275 square feet apiece. Flushing-based Michael Kang is designing, and two small townhouses were demolished in 2014 to make way for the project.

36-Story, 120-Key Hotel Replaces Old Hotel Plans At 306 West 40th Street, Midtown West

Late last year, YIMBY reported on applications for a 30-story, 118-key hotel at 306 West 40th Street, right across from Port Authority, in Midtown West. Now new filings have been submitted for a slightly larger building, rising 36 stories and containing 120 hotel rooms. The structure will measure 44,430 square feet in total, which is an increase by nearly 200 square feet from the old proposal. The project also appears to have changed hands, and Brian Law, operating as NYC One Holding LLC, is the developer. Noel Wong’s Long Island-based ADB Associates is the applicant of record, and an existing four-story building must first be demolished.

Permits Filed: Hotel and Apartments at 138 Bowery, Little Italy

Back in 2011, the Wall Street Journal predicted the demise of the Bowery’s Lighting District, a strip of wholesale light stores beginning south of Delancey Street in the borderlands between the Lower East Side and Little Italy. Now three of those shops will bite the dust to make way for an eight-story residential and hotel project at 138 Bowery, situated mid-block between Broome and Grand Streets.
