Demolition is moving along steadily at 1568 Broadway in Times Square, where the 46-story tower has been reduced to around half its former size. The 30-year-old, 470-foot-tall steel superstructure formerly housed the DoubleTree Suites by Hilton and will be replaced by a new hotel dubbed TSX Broadway. Designed by PBDW Architects, Mancini Duffy, and Perkins Eastman, and developed by L&L Holding Company, Maefield Development, and Fortress Investment Group, the new structure will rise 46 stories and span 550,000 square feet.

Demolition work is moving along on 1568 Broadway, a 30-year-old, 470-foot-tall tower in Times Square that formerly housed the DoubleTree Suites by Hilton. Nearly 75 percent of the building will be razed to create a new 46-story mixed-use property dubbed TSX Broadway. Designed by PBDW Architects, Mancini Duffy, and Perkins Eastman, and developed by L&L Holding Company, Maefield Development, and Fortress Investment Group, the site sits in the heart of Times Square at the corner of Seventh Avenue and West 47th Street.
Demolition of the former DoubleTree Suites by Hilton has kicked off at 1568 Broadway to make way for a new 46-story mixed-use tower. The new structure will debut as TSX Broadway and is developed in collaboration by L&L Holding Company, Maefield Development, and Fortress Investment Group.
250 Fifth Avenue is an upcoming 23-story, 230-foot tall building in Midtown. The future hotel conversion is being designed by Charles Platt of Platt Byard Dovell White Architects with Perkins Eastman as the architect of record. Empire Management is the developer of the NoMad site. The existing 111-year old, five-story exterior of the McKim, Mead & White building is being preserved and restored. The landmarked facade will sit next to the new structure which will be enclosed in light-colored precast concrete panels and closely spaced, vertical strips of narrow windows along the southern facade.
A weave of scaffolding and black netting has now shrouded the exterior facade of a former office building at 250 Fifth Avenue, which will soon be reborn as a hotel. The site is in NoMad, between West 28th Street and West 29th Street. With the facade designated as a landmark within the Madison Square North Historic District, the original five-story McKim, Mead and White structure, completed in 1907, will be part of the conversion that also calls for a new 23-story tower to the west of the original 111 year-old structure.
