Exterior work is making steady progress on the topped-out Gene Kaufman-designed hotel at 305 West 48th Street in Hell’s Kitchen. Located between Eighth and Ninth Avenues, the 303-foot-tall, 27-story tower will contain 211 hotel rooms to help sate the booming demand for lodging in the tourism-heavy Times Square area. Bright Management is listed as the developer and Rockwell Group is in charge of designing the building’s interiors and amenity spaces.
