Permits have been filed for a 19-story hotel to be built at 157 West 24th Street, between Sixth and Seventh Avenue, in Chelsea. The site is less than a block from a Whole Foods grocery store and has easy access to subway stations along 23rd Street, including the F and M trains on Sixth Avenue, the 1 and 2 trains on Seventh Avenue, and on Eighth Avenue, the C and E trains. Jin Sup An’s 157 West 24th Street Lodging LLC will be responsible for development.
The 179-foot tall structure will yield 19,850 square feet, all of which will be dedicated to the commercial hotel. The building will bring 77 transient units to the neighborhood, at an average size of 257 square feet apiece.
Few amenities will be offered, with a lobby, reception, and lounge being the only space available for guests outside of their rooms, not that it’ll be needed considering the liveliness of the area.
Sung Ho Shin Architect will be responsible for the design.
Demolition permits were filed in July. An estimated completion date is not yet known.
