Construction is progressing quickly on the 46-story, dual-brand Marriott Hotel at 140 West 28th Street in Chelsea. Installation of the windows on the northern and southern elevations of the topped-out structure is almost entirely completed, and work should begin soon on the metallic cladding that will cover the remainder of the curtain wall. The 470-foot-tall tower is designed by Gene Kaufman Architect for the McSam Hotel Group and will contain 173,000 square feet of newly built space. Omnibuild is in charge of the construction, and its banner is displayed over the building’s future entrance along West 28th Street.
140 West 28th Street will house a Towne Place and Springhill Suites with a combined total of 531 guest rooms. A potion of these suites will have private terraces. Additional space in the tower will be occupied by a fitness center for hotel guests, meeting rooms, a dining room with an outdoor terrace, and two separate lobbies. The building will also contain a public arcade.
The project is fairly tall for its surroundings and is only one building away from another structure under construction at 132 West 28th Street. The small five-story brick building in between is home to a ground-floor ramen shop.
140 West 28th Street is expected to debut in 2020.
