Located in the northeastern corner of Maiden Lane and Front Street, just south of the South Street Seaport District in Lower Manhattan, construction on 151 Maiden Lane is wrapping up, with the cladding of its tinted and angled blue glass now fully enclosing the building.
The 336-foot-tall and 33-story tower will be a Marriott Hotel designed by Peter Poon Architects. Some of the windows, including large sections of the facade, are angled to face the East River to give guests a better perspective of the surrounding neighborhood. They also yield a unique rippled design of the building profile.
There will be 274 hotel rooms and around 2,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space. In total, the tower has nearly 140,000 square feet of interior space. Some of the guest amenities for the hotel include bike storage, a fitness center, a lounge, and an outdoor terrace.
The building is being developed by LCRE Group and constructed by Pizzarotti-IBC, the same builders behind One Seaport Residences (161 Maiden Lane), a condominium project that will soon stand 57 stories and 670 feet to its rooftop.
The presence of both projects along the East River may eventually be overshadowed by the proposed skyscraper at 80 South Street that has the potential to rise 1,436 feet above Lower Manhattan, thanks to a purchase of nearly 427,000 square feet of air rights back in early 2016. No plans or other news has been announced since.
Completion of 151 Maiden Lane was originally set for 2017 but then was pushed to this past June. Nw, it could be sometime before the end of the summer.
