Permits have been filed for a 34-story hotel building at 150 West 48th Street in Midtown, Manhattan. Located between Sixth Avenue and Seventh Avenue, the lot is steps from the 47-50 Streets Rockefeller Center subway station, serviced by the B, D, F, and M trains and the 49th Street station, serviced by the N, R, and W trains. Hotel developer Sam Chang of McSam Hotel Group is listed as the owner behind the applications, after paying $140 million to purchase the property earlier this year.
The proposed 330-foot-tall development will yield 300,216 square feet designated for commercial space. The building will have 974 residences, with an average unit scope of 308 square feet. The concrete-based structure will also have a cellar and a 20-foot-long rear yard.
Gene Kaufman Architect is listed as the architect of record.
Demolition permits will likely not be needed as the lot is vacant. An estimated completion date has not been announced.
