Construction has made major headway at 503 Canal Street, also known as 2 Renwick Street, in Hudson Square. The development spans through the block and has frontage at 231 Hudson Street, as well. The Metropolis Group is developing, and Gene Kaufman is the architect of record.
Per approved diagrams and permits, the entirety of the development will total 97,000 square feet. The site is configured with one continuous structure spanning through the block, though the facade will differ depending on the street the building is viewed from.
503 Canal’s scope will appear larger from Hudson Street, as that end will rise 119 feet and 11 stories, while the frontage along Renwick and Canal Streets will be shorter, at 107 feet and 10 floors. The hotel will have 325 rooms, and with exterior scaffolding now up, façade installation appears imminent.
On-site renderings indicate Kaufman’s latest addition to Lower Manhattan will be inoffensive. The scope is moderate, and the eventual appearance should be surprisingly pleasant. Notable features include setbacks on the 10th floor, but otherwise, the envelope is plain. Vegetation will apparently rise after the setbacks, and the hotel will also come with an elevated outdoor space.
Per signage, 503 Canal will be completed this November.
