Construction is progressing on the new superstructure of TSX Broadway, a 470-foot-tall hotel at 1568 Broadway in Times Square. Designed by PBDW Architects, Mancini Duffy, and Perkins Eastman and developed by L&L Holding Company, Maefield Development, and Fortress Investment Group, the Midtown, Manhattan project required the partial demolition of the DoubleTree Suites by Hilton while preserving a portion of the original steel-framed podium that’s being repurposed, refurbished, and incorporated into the 21st century overhaul. The end result will be a new 550,000-square-foot tower that will include Kirchoff & Rose’s 108-year-old Palace Theater, which is being renovated and raised 30 feet to make way for ground-floor retail space. The site is located at the corner of Seventh Avenue and West 47th Street, to the east of the red TKTS stairs, and is slated to cost $2.5 billion.
Construction has topped out on the Moxy Lower East Side at 145 Bowery, an 18-story hotel building on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Designed by Stonehill & Taylor Architects and developed by The Lightstone Group, the 193-foot-tall structure will yield 127,000 square feet with 303 guest rooms, averaging 200 square feet apiece. Leeding builders Group, LLC is the general contractor for the project, which is located at the corner of Broome Street and Bowery.
Construction is wrapping up on the Hard Rock Hotel, a 36-story tower at 159 West 48th Street in Times Square.
