Following approvals from New York City’s Department of Buildings, Epos Development will soon begin demolition at 347 Lexington Avenue in Murray Hill, Manhattan, to clear the way for the construction of a 20-story hotel. The new building will include 65 short-stay guest rooms, a communal lounge, and a multipurpose room on the ground level.
At 200 feet tall, the structure will comprise 24,850 square feet and replace an existing low-rise commercial building.
Epos Development partnered with Tan Architect, which was challenged to design the slender building. The most recent renderings reveal a sleek, dark-hued façade, gray cementitious elements at the perimeter of the structure, and an open-air terrace toward the top of the development.
The developer has not yet confirmed an anticipated date of completion for the hotel.
