Construction has topped out at 30 West 39th Street, a 300-room hotel in Midtown, Manhattan. Designed by Peter Poon Architects and developed by Fortuna Realty, the 27-story reinforced concrete structure stands 323 feet tall and spans 133,500 square feet. Leeding Builders Group, LLC is the general contractor for the project.
Recent photos reveal how quickly the structure progressed since YIMBY’s last update in mid January, when construction had just passed the podium. Now the topped-out building has almost its entire curtain wall installed on the main northern elevation.
The rendering above previously depicted a bright gold envelope, but luckily the actual façade is composed of more traditional blue-tinted glass. The primary sections awaiting completion are the podium levels and the final upper floors, which are rendered with distinctive oval-shaped cutouts behind which will sit a proposed rooftop bar. Other amenities include a ground-floor restaurant, a lounge, a fitness center, and a business center. The setbacks near street level will come with landscaped outdoor space. The closest subways to the site are the B, D, F, M, and 7 trains at the 42nd Street-Bryant Park station.
YIMBY previously reported that 30 West 39th Street would finish by this fall, though sometime in the first half of 2021 seems more likely.
