Fortuna Realty Group has filed applications for a 27-story, 299-key hotel at 30 West 39th Street, in Midtown South. The project will encompass 133,523 square feet and rise 323 feet to its roof. A restaurant and an outdoor bar will be located on the ground and second floors, followed by hotel rooms across the fourth through 26th floors. Nobutaka Ashihara’s Financial District-based firm is the architect of record. The 8,662-square-foot assemblage, at 24-30 West 39th Street, is occupied by four four-story commercial buildings. Demolition permits were filed last year.
30 West 39th Street
Fortuna Realty Group has filed permits to demolish the four five-story commercial buildings spanning 24-30 West 39th Street, in Midtown South. The hotel developer acquired 24-28 West 39th Street for $18.3 million in 2014, DNAinfo reports, although it has not yet officially acquired 30 West 39th Street. Plans for the site have not been disclosed, but the assemblage could accommodate up to 86,620 square feet of commercial space. That means a hotel, office building, or a community-facility-based project could eventually be built. A few tenants must first vacate the premises before the building can be demolished.
