Construction is wrapping up on the Margaritaville Resort New York at 560 Seventh Avenue in Times Square. Designed by Stonehill Taylor and developed by Sharif El-Gamal of Soho Properties along with MHP Real Estate Services, the 32-story, 375-foot-tall project is set to open next month with 234 guest rooms and island-inspired interiors designed by the McBride Company. The Midtown, Manhattan property is located at the corner of Seventh Avenue and West 40th Street.
Recent photographs show the newly installed signage for Jimmy Buffett Margaritaville and the Land Shark Bar and Grill. There are two pairs of these signs on both the southern and eastern elevations of the multi-story podium, which is now fully encased in glass and only has minor exterior work along the ground floor and sidewalks left to be completed.
On top of the podium will be New York City’s only year-round heated outdoor swimming pool with an appropriate beach-themed design as part of the 140-seat Landshark Bar & Grill. Other eateries planned to operate are a two-story 492-seat Margaritaville Restaurant with a 32-foot-tall replica of the Statue of Liberty raising a margarita, a 75-seat indoor-outdoor License to Chill Bar and Joe Merchant’s Coffee & Provisions on the fifth floor, and a two-story rooftop bar called the 5 O’Clock Somewhere Bar with wide views over Midtown.
Above, the main tower is now completely encased with the glass and metal paneling up to the mechanical extensions. Guest room features include walk-in rain showers, St. Somewhere bath amenities, a Keurig coffee maker, complimentary Wi-Fi and USB outlets, and Margaritaville bed linens. Margaritaville Resort New York is also slated to yield 4,861 square feet of ground-floor retail space with 160 feet of frontage spanning both West 40th Street and Seventh Avenue.
A metal-framed glass canopy hangs over the sidewalks along Seventh Avenue with signage for the resort.
The Margaritaville Resort New York is slated to open on July 1.
