Work at 113 West 24th Street is in full swing as the upcoming 420-foot-tall Marriott hotel has now risen above street level. The 38-story project is located in Chelsea between Sixth Avenue and Seventh Avenue and is being designed by Stonehill & Taylor Architects with Lam Generation as the developer.

The reinforced concrete structure will yield 136,700 square feet of space, with 129,590 square feet devoted to commercial use. There will be 360 rooms that average around 380 square feet apiece. Permits were filed nearly one year ago and since then, a three-story parking garage on the site has been demolished to clear the way for the new tower. The parcel is actually divided and shared with an upcoming Renaissance Hotel at 112 West 25th Street rising directly behind to the north. The land was purchased from Gary Barnett of Extell for $67.5 million six years ago.

The 1 train is nearby to the west, at the corner of West 23rd Street and Seventh Avenue; the PATH train is also not far away, at the corner of West 23rd Street and Sixth Avenue. Madison Square Park and the Flatiron Building sit two avenues to the east, affording future hotel guests quick access to local eateries like Eataly, green spaces, and famous New York landmarks. There will be 10 rooms per floor from the fourth floor to the 41st floor. A rooftop bar is also planned.

The design of the building is quite different from the surrounding area, with a dark-colored curtain wall that will mix with an abstract crown and canopy. The most striking feature will be a set of thin vertical frames between the narrow windows. The rendering shows that they will visually extend beyond the roof parapet and form a wavy, skeletal canopy above the main entrance along West 24th Street.

A completion date for 113 West 24th Street has yet to be announced, but it will most likely be completed in 2020.

    Built without tower crane, as usual for building who are slim, thin and without much of podium, and below 450 feet, with concrete frame. That’s why Crane Index shouldn’t be applied to NYC and is anyway wrong, do you believe that we have just 28 tower cranes in the while 5 Boroughs, I may count dozen cranes in Brooklyn alone, and another dozen in Queens, and at least 24-28 in Manhattan. Crane Index is wrong, we have at least a double amount of tower cranes, not just “28”!!!!
