Demolition permits have been filed for two buildings at 2 and 10 West 47th Street in Midtown, Manhattan. Located between Fifth Avenue and Sixth Avenue, the adjacent sites are a block from the 47-50 Streets Rockefeller Center subway station, serviced by the B, D, F, and M trains. David Rothstein of Extell is listed as the owner behind the applications.
At 2 West 47th Street, there is presently a 12-story commercial and office building built in 1911, yielding 78,230 square feet. 10 West 47th Street currently houses a 14-story office building built in 1925, with a gross 71,738 square feet of commercial space.
Extell acquired 10 West 47th Street for $74.4 million in 2015, and 2 West 47th Street for $56 million the year prior. Although rumors have long been circulating of a Diamond District hotel by the developer, no plans have been announced for the combined 206,500 buildable square feet.
An estimated completion date has not been announced.
