Construction is nearing completion on 113 West 24th Street, a 39-story Marriott hotel located in the Midtown, Manhattan district of Chelsea. Designed by Stonehill & Taylor Architects and developed by Lam Generation, the 420-foot-tall reinforced concrete tower was last reported to yield 360 guest rooms, each averaging around 380 square feet apiece. Flintlock Construction Services, LLC is the general contractor for the project, which is located between Sixth and Seventh Avenues.
Since our last update in late January, work on the curtain wall has been steadily proceeding. The black rectangular metal panels framing the edges of the main southern elevation now surround the sleek floor-to-ceiling windows. We can see the protective blue film for the glass all peeled off and curtains for each hotel room installed. The blank eastern and western sides are also finished with the dark envelope.
The biggest change has been the construction of the main entrance along West 24th Street. Above and behind the sidewalk scaffolding is a repetitive series of white rectangular frames that leads up to the main building itself. This new assembly didn’t exist yet back in the winter months, while the space between the columns around the mechanical floors and tall lobby were still covered with temporary makeshift walls. Now a large wall of clear glass goes in front of the high ceilings. From afar the height and color of the structure blend well with the other adjacent residential skyscrapers and hotels.
113 West 24th Street will span about 136,700 square feet, with ten rooms per floor beginning on the fourth floor and going up to the 41st floor. At the very top will be a rooftop bar.
The completion date for 113 West 24th Street has been delayed and a finalized date has not been announced. YIMBY predicts sometime by the end of the year or early 2022 as a possible time frame.
