29-Story, 249-Key Hotel Finally Rising At 6 Water Street, Financial District

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.
