Construction of 215 Pearl Street has largely gone unnoticed but has made significant progress. Since our last update in July of 2016, the building has topped out, façade installation is all but complete, and construction of the five-story reflective lobby is underway. The 39-story structure will be adding 320 hotel rooms to the Financial District neighborhood thanks to the developers, the Lam Group.
Construction on the Virgin Hotel at 1225 Broadway has reached yet another milestone. Since we last checked in May, the building has more than doubled in height, and is nearly two-thirds of the way to topping out 38 floors above street level. The project is being developed by the Lam Group and is part of a larger trend of new hotel towers in the NoMad area near the Empire State Building.
NoMad has been experiencing an incredible amount of construction over the last few years, especially for new hotels. Today, YIMBY has a look at 1225 Broadway, the future Virgin Hotel, which is being developed by the Lam Group. New images reveal that construction has now reached the tenth floor, surpassing the tower’s base, which will eventually create 100,000 square feet of retail space. The full footprint of the podium remains to be completed.
The gradual redevelopment of Harlem’s 125th Street corridor isn’t showing any signs of slowing down. Construction is starting to rise above ground level for a 26-story hotel and 25-story residential tower at 233 West 125th Street. The project is best known for its connection with the Victoria Theater, which will be restored and integrated with the Marriott. The Lam Group is the developer.
The evolution of Broadway in the blocks comprising NoMad over the past few years has been nothing short of dramatic. Now, the southwest corner of 30th Street is about to become the most prominent example of the neighborhood’s shifting character as the 476-foot-tall Virgin Hotel begins to rise, at 1225 Broadway.
