21-Story, 60-Room Hotel Filed At 308 West 40th Street, Midtown West
Roughly a year ago, YIMBY reported on applications for a mysterious 13-story commercial building at 308 West 40th Street in the Garment District. Now, new permits have been filed for a 21-story, 60-key hotel. It appears the project has changed hands since last year, with Bing Chui — doing business as 308 Realty Holding LLC — listed as the owner,. Noel Wong’s Long Island-based ADB Associates is the architect of record, and the hotel will measure just 17,410 square feet, rising on a 25-foot-wide lot. Rooms will average 290 square feet each, and an old tenement building was demolished in 2013.
