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.

Chelsea’s hotel boom has been gobbling up whatever under-built properties remain in the neighborhood, and now that is happening at 140 West 24th Street, between Sixth and Seventh Avenues, where new building applications were filed yesterday. Sam Chang is developing a new 45-story and 416-foot-tall tower on the property, which is naturally going to be designed by neighborhood go-to, Gene Kaufman.
Back in January of 2017, YIMBY reported on new job applications for a site spanning 265-267 Broadway, in Tribeca. Gene Kaufman is designing the tower, and now we have the first look at plans for the project, which will yield a glassy skyscraper peaking 510 feet above the streets below.
A rendering has been revealed of the five-story, 289-key dual-branded hotel at 36-20 Steinway Street, located on the corner of Northern Boulevard in the Dutch Kills section of Long Island City. The project will feature a 102-key Homewood Suites and a 187-key Hampton Inn, DNAinfo reported. Both brands are owned by Hilton Hotels & Resorts.
Another sky-scraping residential tower is headed for the blocks near City Hall. Roe Corporation filed plans yesterday for a 42-story, mixed-use building at 265 Broadway, across from City Hall Park between Warren and Chambers streets.
