Last month, YIMBY brought you news of Tribeca Associates’ planned 26-story, 228-key hotel at 143 Fulton Street/26 Ann Street, in the Financial District, and now crews are prepping the existing three-story building for demolition, courtesy of a YIMBY reader. Retail space will be located on the first three floors in the 88,447 square-foot building, and SLCE Architects is the architect of record. The new building’s design has not yet been revealed.
In February of 2014, YIMBY reported on filings for a 29-story, 249-key hotel at 6 Water Street, in the Financial District, and later that year, revealed an on-site rendering of the project, which is being designed by Gene Kaufman. Courtesy of a YIMBY reader, photos confirm the building is finally rising, and it’s now one floor above street level. Rhode Island-based Magna Hospitality Group is developing, after acquiring the site from prolific hotel builder Sam Chang last year for $44.3 million. Signage indicates an anticipated completion date of this coming winter, though that would seem unlikely.
In April, YIMBY revealed the Pestana Hotel planned for 338 West 39th Street, the latest commercial venture from prolific hotelier Sam Chang. Now new building applications have been filed to erect a 25-story hotel on the lot between Eighth and Ninth Avenues.
Ronkonkoma-based Browning Hotel Properties has proposed a six-story, 156-key Marriott hotel at the municipal parking lot on the corner of Broadway and Langdon Place, in Nassau County’s Lynbrook. Located a block away from the village’s LIRR station, the first three levels will house 306 parking spaces, 96 of which will be used by the hotel (the remaining set aside for municipal and commuter parking). According to Newsday, the village has signed an agreement with the developer for the land, and official plans will be filed in September.
The Hakimian Organization, partnered with Gorjian Properties, is acquiring 16,000 square feet of air rights for their planned 24-story, 246-key hotel building at 250 West 49th Street, in Midtown’s Theater District. The existing eight-story building is to be converted into the hotel’s lower portion, while a 16-story expansion will be placed on top, topping out at 279 feet in height. The 94,850 square-foot structure will also feature retail on the ground floor. Gillman Consulting Inc. is the applicant of record.
