Construction is rising on the Warren Street Hotel, an 11-story hotel building at 86 Warren Street in Tribeca. Designed by Stonehill & Taylor Architects and developed by Solil Management, the 135-foot-tall structure will yield 44,000 square feet with 70 guest rooms operated by Firmdale Hotels, a restaurant, a drawing room, an orangery, a bar, and a private event space. Pavarini McGovern, LLC is the general contractor, Kit Kemp is the interior designer, and Paul Taylor under the Warren Street Hotel LLC is the owner behind the previously filed permit applications for the project, which is located between Greenwich Street and West Broadway.
The site sat dormant since our permit filing update in June of 2019, but the superstructure is now rising above the sidewalk fence. Workers were seen putting up the supporting scaffolding to hold up the third-floor slab, and a telescopic crane helped to lift materials to the second story.
The exterior rendering depicts a modern take on industrial style with a detailed dark façade composed of a grid of steel columns and beams with floor-to-ceiling glass. A rectangular mechanical extension sits atop the flat roof parapet and is clad with grilles and a black metal paneling system. There appears to be a landscaped outdoor rooftop terrace, with another one spanning the entire width of the eighth floor. The relatively simple massing of the building should make vertical progress move steadily. We could see 86 Warren Street top out by next spring.
86 Warren Street is a short walk from the Chambers Street subway station, serviced by the 1, 2, and 3 trains. Also nearby is the Oculus with access to the PATH Trains to New Jersey, and the subways at the World Trade Center, Cortlandt Street, Chambers Street, and Fulton Street stations that collectively service the A, C, E, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, R, and W trains.
A completion date of July 2022 has been posted on the construction board, though YIMBY sees this building being done at the end of next year or in early 2023.

A fitting end to a surface parking lot that lasted way too long.
It’s not a bad design.
Not at all. So much better than Kaufman and Poon!
This might actually work
