The 20th-tallest building on our year-end construction countdown is 58 West 39th Street, a 475-foot-tall hotel tower in Midtown, Manhattan. Designed by Marin Architects and developed by Wei Hong Hu of H Hotel LLC, the 42-story structure will yield 177 guest rooms and amenities including a restaurant and an outdoor bar. City Cross Construction Corp. is the general contractor for the property, which is located on a narrow plot between Fifth and Sixth Avenues, one block below Bryant Park.
Recent photos show additional levels added to the upper cantilevering floors of the superstructure since our last update in November 2022, when crews were in the process of assembling the diagonal steel trusses that will help transfer the building loads to the ground. Work stalled shortly thereafter, but the project appears to be back on track. Construction should progress more smoothly given the repetitive nature of the floor plates from the cantilever to the crown, and could potentially top out sometime next spring.
Below is a zoning diagram that shows the new massing of the tower following the increase from its previous scope of 28 stories and an architectural height of 447 feet. A mechanical bulkhead will sit atop the parapet along the eastern end of the roof.
New updated renderings have yet to be released. The nearest subways from the site are the B, D, F, M, and 7 trains at the 42nd Street-Bryant Park station to the north.
YIMBY was informed by Marin Architects that 58 West 39th Street will complete construction around mid-2025.
