Gene Kaufman’s upcoming Marriott Courtyard and Residence Inn at 215 Pearl Street is steadily getting closer to the finish line. The project is a 396-foot-tall and 39-story hotel in the heart of Lower Manhattan’s Financial District. 320 suites are expected to be created inside the 165,655-square-foot reinforced concrete structure. Rooms will begin on the fifth floor, and terminate on the 37th floor. Nobutaka Ashihara Architects is the architect of record, while Lam Group is the developer of the project. The site is located at the intersection of Pearl Street and Platt Street.

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.
Fortuna Realty Group has filed applications for a 27-story, 299-key hotel at 30 West 39th Street, in Midtown South. The project will encompass 133,523 square feet and rise 323 feet to its roof. A restaurant and an outdoor bar will be located on the ground and second floors, followed by hotel rooms across the fourth through 26th floors. Nobutaka Ashihara’s Financial District-based firm is the architect of record. The 8,662-square-foot assemblage, at 24-30 West 39th Street, is occupied by four four-story commercial buildings. Demolition permits were filed last year.
Foundation work is now underway on the 21-story hotel under development at 16 East 30th Street, in NoMad. The construction progress can be seen thanks to a photo posted to the YIMBY Forums. The latest building permits indicate that the new structure will encompass 50,997 square feet and rise 204 feet to its roof, not including the bulkhead.
Construction appears to be nearly done on the 19-story redevelopment project underway at 444 Park Avenue South, located on the corner of East 30th Street in Midtown South. The construction progress can be seen thanks to photos snapped by Tectonic. The former 13-story office building has been expanded by six stories and redeveloped into a 190-key SLS Hotel. It contains 86,973 square feet of commercial space, which means the hotel suites should average 458 square feet apiece. Hotel amenities include a restaurant on the ground floor, a fitness center, meeting rooms, and an outdoor lounge on the 14th floor. Moin Development and SBE are the developers. Nobutaka Ashihara’s Financial District-based architecture firm is behind the design. Opening is expected next spring.
