New York hotelier Sam Chang and Marriott International partnered in 2016 to introduce several new ground up hotels around the city. Now, construction on one of two dual-branded properties has picked up between Eighth and Ninth avenues, at 338 West 36th Street.
Permits have been filed for a five-story mixed use building at 383 Union Avenue in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The site is two blocks away from the Metropolitan Avenue subway station, serviced by the G and L trains. Ravi Patel is responsible for the development, after purchasing the lot for $2.25 million from the Bestreich Realty Group.
UPDATE: According to architect James Davidson from SLCE, “This image does not remotely comply with present or future massing constraints available for this site and was meant merely for internal circulation, not for public view. The 1QPS full block site is built full under today’s zoning regulations and cannot support such a structure.”
Pace Gallery’s new building at 540 West 25th Street, located between 10th and 11th Avenue, has structurally topped out, and installation of the curtain wall is now well underway. The existing gallery is located next to the High Line at 508 & 510 West 25th Street, standing one story tall, and uses four large skylights that flood the interior with natural daylight. The new 60,000 square foot building will stand eight stories and be designed by Bonetti/Kozerski Studio, and developed by Weinberg Properties.
Local developer Sam Chang has completed another hospitality project in Midtown West, located at 324 West 44th Street. Based in Long Island City, McSam Hotel Group is one of the largest hotel developers in New York City with over 20 properties across the five boroughs.
