Construction is continuing to rise on 150 West 48th Street, a 330-foot tall, 38-story Hilton hotel in Times Square. Designed by Gene Kaufman Architect and developed by Sam Chang of McSam Hotel Group, the 320,000-square-foot structure will yield 1,048 hotel rooms, up from the previous reported count of 974, making it the ninth-largest hotel in New York City. McSam Hotel Group purchased the site from Rockefeller Group in early 2019 for $140 million, and received a $250 million construction loan before work broke ground in 2020. Omnibuild is in charge of constructing the hotel.
Canopy, a new concept by Hilton, recently debuted in the heart of Jersey City’s vibrant Arts District. Located at 159 Morgan Street, the new hotel includes 211 guestrooms, a coworking lounge, formal meeting space, a 24-hour fitness center, and an on-site bar and bistro for entertainment and easy dining.
12 East 48th Street‘s distinctive metallic façade panels are making their way up the northern elevation of the 31-story Midtown East structure. Arranged in a staggered pattern surrounding floor-to-ceiling windows, the bold curtain wall will create a striking contrast with the surrounding masonry-clad buildings. Located between Madison Avenue and Fifth Avenue, the slim tower is topped out and will eventually open as a 161-room Hilton Grand Vacation Hotel. The project is designed by Handel Architects and developed by Hidrock Realty.
