McSam Hotel Group will break ground in January on a new Marriott Hotel property in Times Square. Located at 223 West 46th Street between Broadway and Eighth Avenue, the 200-key Marriott SpringHill is designed by Gene Kaufman Architects and replaces a former parking lot.
Renderings from the architect illustrate a slender, gray building with a setback above the lobby level. The guest rooms will have balcony or terrace access, and visitors will have access to a garden-level fitness center, a ground-floor restaurant with outdoor seating, and a rear yard.
According to the architect, the building will rise “at least 26 stories,” however, the most updated renderings show 34 full floors. The complete structure will reportedly comprise 70,000 square feet.
“This hotel is just one of our recent contributions to Midtown Manhattan, which is home to many GKA-designed hotels and draws an increasing number of visitors each year,” said Gene Kaufman, founder of Gene Kaufman Architects. “With NYC tourism showing no signs of stopping, it’s incumbent upon us as a city to provide ample mid-priced hotels for a variety of visitors who want to experience New York.”
The property is the latest to arrive from longtime collaborators McSam Hotel Group and Gene Kaufman Architects.
At this time, the project team has not confirmed a completion date for the hotel.
