The 23-story reinforced concrete structure at 250 Fifth Avenue has topped out in NoMad. The 230-foot-tall hotel tower is located along West 28th Street directly adjacent to an 111-year-old McKim, Mead & White-designed five-story building with a landmarked façade. PBDW Architects and Perkins Eastman are the designers of the addition, which is being developed by Flaneur Hospitality.

New photos from street level show the current state of construction. The lower five-story section is still enclosed in a thick layer of scaffolding and black netting. The window frames on this portion are mostly in place, though installation of the curtain wall that surrounds them has yet to begin. Renderings show a light-colored exterior and the preservation and restoration of the ground-floor stone walls, which can be spotted at the site.

  1. A very aesthetically beautiful and respectfully designed high rise hotel that matches the historic five story landmark next door in style and material. This is New York development and progress at its very best, a mixture of new construction and historic preservation.
