Construction is above street level at 76 Eighth Avenue, a ten-story office building from Gene Kaufman Architect in Chelsea. Developed by Sang Lee, Noviprop, and Plus Development, the 120-foot-tall project will yield 30,000 square feet of office space and ground-floor retail.

Work is moving along on 120 Water Street, a topped-out, 28-story project from Gene Kaufman Architects and Atlas Hospitality in the Financial District. The 52,000-square-foot building will contain a Hotel Indigo with 128 rooms managed by Fortuna Realty Group.
Excavation has begun at 150 West 48th Street in Midtown, site of 974-room hotel designed by Gene Kaufman Architect. The 330-foot-tall, 34-story project is being developed by Sam Chang of McSam Hotel Group, who purchased the lot for $140 million from Rockefeller Group in early 2019 and secured a $250 million construction loan. Rooms will occupy a total of 300,216 square feet, for an average of 308 square feet apiece.
The 189-foot-tall, 22-story reinforced concrete edifice of 291 Livingston Street appears to have recently topped out. YIMBY last covered the Downtown Brooklyn building several years ago and reported that this will become a 100-key hotel. A rendering on the construction fence depicts a very bold pattern of black and white stripes in an almost Dazzle camouflage-esque configuration on the party walls. Hello Living is the owner of the lot after purchasing the site for $11.1 million, and is developing the project with Aview Equities. Gene Kaufman Architect is the architect of record.
The brick envelope of 292 Fifth Avenue is reaching the final stories of the 21-story mixed-use hotel. Designed by Gene Kaufman Architect and developed by Sam Chang, the project is located between West 30th and 31st Streets on the border of both Koreatown and NoMad. The property is set to yield 16 residential units and a hotel operated by Le Meridien.
