Construction is nearing completion on the Ritz -Carlton Hotel and Residences, a 45-story skyscraper at 1185 Broadway in NoMad. Designed by Rafael Vinoly and developed by Marriott, Ritz Carlton Hotels, and Flag Luxury Properties, the 580-foot-tall tower will yield 250 guest rooms spread across 150,000 square feet, as well as a collection of 16 one- and two-bedroom penthouse residences on the upper levels. Lendlease is the general contractor for the project, which is located at the corner of Broadway and West 28th Street. The Erin Boisson Aries team at Christie’s International Real Estate is handling the sales of the penthouse residences.
Since our last update in June, work has progressed on the cladding at the podium and below the flat parapet. Some minor work still remains to be completed on these sections.
Glass railings for the top of the podium should be installed soon, while orange netting around the mechanical levels above the last hotel floors should also be taken down over the coming weeks. Each of the glass panels had been protected with large white sheets with diamond cutouts. Many of these have been removed, revealing the final look of the envelope.
Guests enter through the main lobby next to the motor courtyard along West 28th Street and will have access to food and beverages provided by ThinkFoodGroup. Michelin-starred Chef José Andrés will operate his Zaytinya and Bazaar restaurants within the Ritz-Carlton along with the planned rooftop bar on the 43rd floor that will come with two terraces. Andrés is also curating an in-residence dining menu. Also coming soon is a 6,800-square-foot spa and wellness center, a Club Lounge, multiple event spaces spanning 11,000 square feet with a 3,500-square-foot grand ballroom with 17-foot-high ceilings, and business and a la carte guest and owner services. A full list of services can be found on the Ritz-Carlton’s main website.
Below is a typical penthouse living room with 10-foot-high ceilings and wide rectangular windows with approximately 12-foot mullion-free panes framing the views of the city. These units will be housed between floors 40 through 42 with four units per level.
The Poliform kitchens are crafted with honed white quartzite counters and backsplashes, custom-designed cabinetry with integrated lighting throughout, Miele appliances including speed and steam ovens, an induction stove, and a dual-zone wine storage.
Master bathrooms feature Italian Bardiglio Nuvolato marble, a custom-designed terrazzo double-sink, an extra large Duravit soaking tub with Dornbracht fixtures, and a separate water closet and rain-shower.
The Ritz-Carlton should likely open in early 2022.
