The upcoming 29-story Margaritaville Resort at 560 Seventh Avenue is rising above Times Square and has already reached its main setback. YIMBY last checked in on the project back in early May, when it had just begun to ascend above street level. Sharif El-Gamal of Soho Properties is developing the site along with MHP Real Estate Services, and Stonehill & Taylor Architects is the designer. There will be a three-story restaurant, an outdoor swimming pool with plentiful seating and beach-themed motifs, and a rooftop bar called the LandShark Bar & Grill. The projected price for the resort hotel is expected to be around $300 million.
Sharif el Gamal
Construction is getting very close to topping out at 45 Park Place, one of the newest towers to rise along the border of Tribeca and the Financial District. The upcoming 667-foot-tall residential skyscraper is being designed by SOMA Architects, with Ismael Leyva Architects serving as the executive and residential architect. Sharif el-Gamal of Soho Properties is the developer of the reinforced concrete structure, which will stand 43 stories high. Sales of the units, which feature interiors designed by Piero Lissoni, are being handled by Corcoran Sunshine.
The first floor slabs for a new Margaritavile Resort at 560 Seventh Avenue are beginning to rise above the crowded tourist-congested streets and sidewalks of Times Square. The 29-story building will sit at the intersection of Seventh Avenue and West 40th Street. Coming to the property will be a three-story restaurant, an outdoor swimming pool with plentiful seating and beach-themed motifs, and a rooftop bar called the LandShark Bar & Grill. Sharif El-Gamal of Soho Properties is developing the site along with MHP Real Estate Services. The cost to build is expected to be around $300 million.
With verticality possibly imminent at 45 Park Place, on the edge of the Financial District and Tribeca, Sharif El-Gamal of Soho Properties has now filed applications for a neighboring community facility, at 51 Park Place. Scott Newman of Cooper Robertson is listed as the architect, and the plans seem to be an updated version of the site’s former mosque, which was demolished back in 2011 to make way for the new residential tower.
YIMBY came across a fresh set of renderings for Sharif el-Gamal’s 45 Park Place, via architect SOMA’s website, and the images give a much clearer depiction of the soon-to-be 39-story tower. Curbed had an early look…
