Designed by Stantec and developed by Lam Group, the 38-story, 476-foot-tall structure will yield 300,000 square feet with 460 hotel rooms. Sir Richard Branson of Virgin Group will be in charge of managing the property, which is the first Virgin Hotel in New York City.

The 40-story skyscraper is designed by Rafael Vinoly and developed by Marriott, Ritz Carlton Hotels, and Flag Luxury Properties. The interiors are being designed by Yabu Pushelberg.

The LPC reviewed the proposals on Tuesday, May 12.
The reinforced concrete superstructure of 1245 Broadway, a 23-story office building from Skidmore Owings and Merrill, is steadily rising in NoMad.
