Construction is rising on the 18-story Moxy Hotel at 145 Bowery on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Designed by Stonehill & Taylor Architects and developed by Lightstone Group, the 193-foot-tall structure will yield 127,000 square feet and 303 rooms, averaging 200 square feet apiece. The property, which is located at the corner of Broome Street and Bowery, will also feature a restaurant, a lobby bar, a cocktail bar, and a lounge.
West 28th Street has been one of the hottest streets in Chelsea’s ongoing development boom for several years. With several buildings by Gene Kaufman already completed along the stretch, the former Flower District is about to see yet another new hotel open, this time, at 105 West 28th Street. The latest photos by JC_Heights show the tower has now passed the halfway point to its 35-story and 410-foot pinnacle.
Last September, YIMBY reported on new building applications for 112 East 11th Street, in the heart of the East Village, which is being developed by the Lightstone Group. EVGrive posted a preliminary image for the site back in February, and now, we have the first full rendering for the project, which is being designed by Stonehill & Taylor Architects.
Excavation is well underway for the 35-story, 343-key Moxy hotel planned to rise at 105 West 28th Street, on the western side of Chelsea. A photo of the recent excavation work has been posted to the YIMBY Forums by JC_Heights. The 410-foot-tall tower will encompass 145,344 square feet. Hotel rooms will be located on the fourth through 32nd floors, while guest amenities will round out the building’s remaining space. Amenities include a fitness center, a food market on the ground floor, a lounge and meeting rooms on the second, two rear yard terraces, and a sky-lounge with a restaurant on the 34th floor. The Lightstone Group is developing, and Stonehill & Taylor Architects is behind the design. The project had been delayed because a tower of its size required air rights to be transferred from around the block.
This morning, we had hotel news for you. Now, we have more. In April, Lightstone Group acquired, for $127 million, a six-building, 181-unit residential portfolio for that comprises of 112-120 East 11th Street and 85 East 10th Street, in the East Village. The developer is currently planning to build a 85,000-square-foot, roughly 300-key boutique hotel at 112-120 East 11th Street, according to The Real Deal. Marriott International’s MOXY Hotels will be the operator. The five-story buildings at 112-120 East 11th Street currently contain 75 residential units across five buildings and are expected to be demolished. The other six-story, 106-unit building at 85 East 10th Street will remain and is expected to be sold off. The April acquisition was financed with an $85 million loan. The five apartment buildings at 112-120 East 11th Street represented $52.1 million, while the six story property at 85 East 10th Street traded for $75.4 million.
