New York’s newest Ritz Carlton Hotel is making progress at 1185 Broadway in NoMad. Construction has passed the first several high-ceiling podium levels, and work should begin soon on the main hotel portion of the reinforced concrete structure. Located at the northern intersection of Broadway and West 28th Street, the 580-foot-tall, 40-story skyscraper is designed by Rafael Vinoly, while Marriott, Ritz Carlton Hotels, and Flag Luxury Properties are developing the $500 million project. The interiors are being designed by Yabu Pushelberg.
A recent photo by YIMBY user, JC_Heights, shows the superstructure filling in the corner lot.
This lower section of the hotel will be covered in large, floor-to-ceiling glass windows and dark paneling. The next couple of stories above appear to be mechanical levels with equally high ceiling heights and an outdoor loggia. This portion of the tower is architecturally similar to the flat crown of the structure. The row of six columns in the rendering will run up the full height of the skyscraper and break up the glass curtain wall. The hotel and residential level will sit between these lower mechanical stories and beneath an open, landscaped terrace, as visualized by the trees in the rendering.
The development will create 150,000 square feet of space and come with 250 guest rooms and 16 residential units. Amenities for guests and residents include a spa, a fitness center, bicycle parking, a public ground-floor restaurant with a bar, and a rooftop bar.
Completion of 1185 Broadway is expected by late 2020 or early 2021.
