Facade Installation Imminent at Hyatt Place Hotel, 27-07 43rd Avenue, Long Island City

The last time YIMBY checked out the progress at Long Island City’s Hyatt Place hotel at the end of April, the building was approaching its final floor. Since then, the structure has both topped-out and been enclosed within its curtain wall. The future 108-room hotel, developed by Prakash Patel and designed by Michael Kang Architect, looks ready to receive its exterior cladding.

LED Crown Atop 73-Story One57 Illuminated for First Time

YIMBY’s last update on One57 — the 73-story mixed-use tower, with 92 condominiums perched above a 210-key Park Hyatt Hotel, at 157 West 57th Street, in Midtown — was back in August of 2014. At the time, the removal of sidewalk shedding was underway, which signaled that construction had been completed. One last element, however, wasn’t revealed until earlier this week: the structure’s LED crown that faces Central Park. The western half was turned on, as seen in a photo posted to the YIMBY Forums. Renderings have long suggested an illuminated crown on the 1,005-foot-tall tower, which was designed by Paris-based Atelier Christian de Portzamparc. Extell Development Company developed One57. Per a count done in the spring, 38 condos remained unsold.

Four-Story, 35-Key Hotel Planned at 3336 Webster Avenue, Norwood

Bronx-based Ultimate Seven LLC has filed applications for a four-story, 35-key hotel at 3336 Webster Avenue, in the West Bronx’s Norwood section. The project will measure a compact 10,193 square feet and its hotel rooms should average a budget-sized 283 square feet apiece. Guest amenities include a 704-square-foot lobby, 11 off-street parking spaces, a fitness center, a business meeting room, and a breakfast area. Asher Hershkowitz’s Brooklyn-based architecture firm is the architect of record. The 5,100-square-foot site is vacant and stretches 144 feet along Webster Avenue. The Williams Bridge station on Metro-North Railroad is a block to the north.
