Renaissance New York Chelsea Hotel is now officially open and arrives as the brand’s premiere hotel in the neighborhood. At 430 feet tall, it is also one of the tallest structures ever constructed in Chelsea. The property is located at 112 West 25th Street and replaced the long-running Antiques Garage indoor flea market, considered one of the go-to destinations for antique shoppers. The hotel’s interiors, courtesy of architects Stonehill Taylor, pay homage to the iconic market and Chelsea’s eclectic history.
The Margaritaville Resort at 560 Seventh Avenue in Times Square has climbed to the pinnacle. Work on the curtain wall has also moved along quickly and is nearing the upper floors of the reinforced concrete superstructure. Designed by Stonehill & Taylor Architects and developed by Sharif El-Gamal of Soho Properties along with MHP Real Estate Services, the nearly $300 million project will help fulfill the booming demand for hotel space as tourism to New York City and areas like Times Square continues to rise. The 29-story tower is located at the corner of Seventh avenue and West 40th Street and will contain 234 rooms.
