Located in the heart of Midtown between West 36th Street and West 37th Streets is a new hotel that has topped out at 525 Eighth Avenue. Designed by Gene Kaufman Architect, the 28-story building is being developed by Sam Chang of McSam Hotel Group. There will be 321 rooms covering a total of 96,000 square feet when complete.
525 Eighth Avenue
A White Castle that has now been demolished will not be the worst thing to have ever occupied 525 Eighth Avenue, which YIMBY reported on back in October of 2016, when permits were filed for a 24-story hotel designed by Gene Kaufman Architects. Revised plans approved in August show a slight increase in the height, to 26 floors, and today, we have the reveal for what the project will look like.
