Exterior work is complete on the Ritz-Carlton Hotel and Residences, a 45-story skyscraper at 1185 Broadway in NoMad. Designed by Rafael Vinoly and developed by Marriott, Ritz Carlton Hotels, and Flag Luxury Properties, the 580-foot-tall reinforced concrete tower will yield 250 guest rooms spread across 150,000 square feet and 16 one- and two-bedroom penthouse residences on the upper levels. Lendlease is the general contractor for the project, which is located at the corner of Broadway and West 28th Street. The Erin Boisson Aries team at Christie’s International Real Estate is handling the sales of the penthouses.
Construction has topped out the Warren Street Hotel, an 11-story building at 86 Warren Street in Tribeca. Designed by Stonehill Taylor and developed by Solil Management, the 135-foot-tall structure will yield 44,000 square feet and 70 guest rooms operated by Firmdale Hotels, as well as a restaurant, a drawing room, an orangery, a bar, and a private event space. Pavarini McGovern, LLC is the general contractor, Kit Kemp is the interior designer, and Paul Taylor under the Warren Street Hotel LLC is the owner behind the previously filed permit applications for the property, which is located between Greenwich Street and West Broadway.
Exterior work continues to progress on 50 Trinity Place, a 28-story Aloft Hotel in the Financial District. Designed by Peter Poon Architects and developed by FIT Investment Corporation, which purchased the property for $15 million in 2012, the 77,310-square-foot reinforced concrete tower will yield 173 guest rooms. Cauldwell Wingate is serving as the general contractor for the project, which is located at the corner of Trinity Place and Rector Street, diagonally across from Trinity Church.
Several more floors have been added to the reinforced concrete superstructure of 255 West 34th Street, a rising 33-story hotel in Midtown, Manhattan. Designed by Stonehill Taylor Architects and developed by The Chetrit Group, the 397-foot-tall, 155,594-square-foot development will yield 330 guest rooms. Flintlock Construction Services, LLC is the general contractor for the building, which is located on the southern edge of the Garment District between Seventh and Eighth Avenues, right across from One Penn Plaza, Madison Square Garden, and a short walk to the nearby James A. Farley Building and Moynihan Train Hall.
Demolition is underway at 570 Fifth Avenue, the site of a potential supertall skyscraper in Midtown, Manhattan. Developed by Extell, the tower could reach a height of 1,100 feet and 78 floors on a 43,011-square-foot plot at the corner of Fifth Avenue and West 46th Street. The parcel had mostly sat vacant for the past several years, and includes several old structures that are now in the process of being razed. There is still no architect publicly announced, nor clear indication of the building’s programming, though a series of zoning and massing diagrams and ground-floor plans suggest either an office complex or a residential and hotel development, with the latter reaching supertall status.
