Construction of a new 46-story, dual-brand Marriott hotel at 140 West 28th Street in Manhattan is now topped out. Designed by Gene Kaufman Architects for the McSam Hotel Group, the structure stands 470 feet above Chelsea with exterior cladding that resembles a single, continuous metal panel.

The development is on schedule to debut in 2020 as both a Towne Place and Springhill Suites with a total of 531 guest rooms. A portion of these suites will include private terraces.

Additional building components for the hotel include a fitness center, meeting rooms, a dining room with an outdoor terrace, and two separate lobbies. The building will also contain a new public arcade.

When complete the building will comprise just over 173,000 square feet.

  1. Developer’s brainpower is intellectual property, design by its structure standing tall. Sorry for I interfering your rendering coming to complete in the area, I’m not intended to interloper you to reporting about prominent progress. So we interlock by words and comments that we are interested in interestingly shaped. Intake on intense appearance integrating intention. (Thanks to YIMBY)

  2. What a blight Kaufman has been on Manhattan! This is worse than “value engineering”. It is just cheap and lazy. It could easily have been so much better.

    Another stellar Kaufed up design…

  4. Really? An architect was used? Why bother. Hudson Yards and this POS are ruining NYC. Who approved this junk? How much were they paid? Building Dept needs to be investigated for corruption. They wouldn’t approve this in Milwaukee. Disgusting Greed Vultures.

  5. There’s nothing that I could add that isn’t painfully obvious. What a disgrace.

  6. The only consolation is that it replaces a parking lot, and not one of the Flower District shops getting bulldozed one by one on this block.

  7. That setback is a crime. Why has there been no mainstream publication doing investigative reporting on him? Someone email the NY Times Architecture critic… At some point in the future when the history of NY City architecture is written this guy will get his own scathing few paragraphs…
