At number 28 on YIMBY’s annual construction countdown is the Ritz-Carlton Hotel and Residences, a 580-foot-tall skyscraper at 1185 Broadway in the Midtown, Manhattan neighborhood of NoMad. Designed by Rafael Vinoly and developed by Marriott, Ritz Carlton Hotels, and Flag Luxury Properties, the 45-story tower will yield 250 guest rooms spread across 150,000 square feet, as well as 16 one- and two-bedroom penthouse residences perched 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 penthouses.
Since our last update in October, work continues to wrap up on the crown and podium of the skyscraper.
The façade is close to being done, with the primary outstanding work including the installation of glass railings, the removal of orange netting across the podium and upper levels, and the completion of the landscaped motor courtyard. Interior work is well underway on the hotel rooms and residences, while construction is complete on the mechanical floors separating the multi-story podium and lower hotel floors, and atop the space that will hold the rooftop bar and terraces. The sidewalk scaffolding should be removed in the coming weeks.
Below is a series of exterior and interior daytime and nighttime renderings. Guests enter through the main lobby next to the open-air motor courtyard located 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 property along with the planned rooftop bar on the 43rd floor that will come with two outdoor terraces. Andrés is also curating an in-residence dining menu.
Also coming soon are 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. The full list of services can be found on the Ritz-Carlton’s website.
The Ritz-Carlton hotel and residences should likely open in the early months of 2022.
