Downtown New Rochelle may soon have an interesting addition to its skyline as plans were recently filed for a 48-story skyscraper at 11 Lawton Street. In addition to the 605-foot tower, the site will also house a separate 23-story hotel building. As reported in the New York YIMBY forums, this will be the largest mixed-use development project in the city’s history if approved later this month at the Planning Board meeting.
The reinforced concrete structure of 140 West 24th Street is nearing the halfway mark in its rise to an imminent 45-story and 416-foot pinnacle. Gene Kaufman Architect is designing the new hotel, and Sam Chang is developing the 142,949 square foot structure. Besides the 508 hotel rooms, there will be a main lobby, a dining area, and kitchens on the cellar and first floors. The site is located in Chelsea, between Sixth and Seventh Avenue.
Gene Kaufman’s upcoming Marriott Courtyard and Residence Inn at 215 Pearl Street is steadily getting closer to the finish line. The project is a 396-foot-tall and 39-story hotel in the heart of Lower Manhattan’s Financial District. 320 suites are expected to be created inside the 165,655-square-foot reinforced concrete structure. Rooms will begin on the fifth floor, and terminate on the 37th floor. Nobutaka Ashihara Architects is the architect of record, while Lam Group is the developer of the project. The site is located at the intersection of Pearl Street and Platt Street.
A $3.5 billion initiative to reshape and redevelop an industrial wasteland on the Eastern edge of The Bronx has reached the final stages of negotiations, and could soon begin construction. Known formally as Fordham Landing, the property is located between the Harlem River and the Major Deegan Expressway, immediately adjacent to the University Heights Bridge.
Permits have been filed for a 25-story hotel at 319 West 35th Street in Hudson Yards, Manhattan. Located between 8th Avenue and 9th Avenue, the interior lot is one block north of 34th Street-Penn Station, serviced by the A, C, and E trains. Wei Hong Hu under the H Hotel LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications.
