The Grand Hyatt New York next to Grand Central Terminal may soon be replaced. Developers TF Cornerstone and MSD Partners, L.P. recently announced their plans to redevelop the site in East Midtown, at 42nd Street and Lexington Avenue. The new mixed-use project would take the place of the existing building, adding 2 million square feet of retail and prime class A office space. In addition, the proposal also includes a new (but smaller) Grand Hyatt hotel.
Standing 38 stories above Hudson Park is 515 West 36th Street. After excavation and foundation work began in 2016, the new mixed-use building now rises 418 feet. Located between the northern tip of Hudson Boulevard East and 10th Avenue, the site is a little over 328,000 square feet of newly built space. The reinforced concrete structure topped out in the summer of 2017 and is now fully enclosed in a reflective glass curtain wall. Ismael Leyva Architects is the designer, with Lalezarian Properties as the developer.

Today, the project is expected to move forward as intended following strong support from neighborhood residents, small business owners, and local union members.
