Exterior work is nearing completion on 30 West 39th Street, a 27-story hotel tower in Midtown, Manhattan. Designed by Peter Poon Architects and developed by Fortuna Realty, the 323-foot-tall reinforced concrete structure will yield 133,500 square feet with 330 guest rooms. Leeding Builders Group, LLC is the general contractor for the property, which is located between Fifth and Sixth Avenues, just one block south of Bryant Park.
Since our last update in November, work has concluded on the black metal paneling surrounding the mechanical system vent grilles around the third story. Construction has now shifted to the two stories below. The sidewalk scaffolding remains in place, obscuring any progress on the ground level of the hotel.
The glass curtain wall for the main tower is practically complete, along with the paneling covering the blank eastern and western sides. Work is still underway on the rooftop bar space on the northern elevation facing Bryant Park. The mechanical bulkhead also appears to be shaping up and nearly done.
Few details have been revealed regarding the interiors of the hotel property, though it was last reported that guest amenities will include a ground-floor restaurant, a lounge, a fitness center, and a business center. The nearest subways are the B, D, F, M, and 7 trains at the 42nd Street-Bryant Park station to the north along Sixth Avenue. This station provides new below-grade access via a tunnel to the Shuttle from 6:00 PM to 11:59 PM, and another subterranean connection to the 1, 2, 3, N, Q, R, and W trains at the Times Square-42nd Street station. This station in turn provides underground access to the A, C, and E trains and buses at the 42nd Street-Port Authority Bus Terminal station on Eighth Avenue. The 4, 5, 6, and 7 trains are also not too far away at Grand Central Terminal to the east.
It’s estimated that 30 West 39th Street will be finished and operational by sometime in mid-2022.
