NEW YORK | 215 Pearl St. | 39 fl | Prep



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

215 Pearl: Downtown's Newest Dual-Marriott in the Works

Quote:
By: Nikolai Fedak on September 5th 2012 at 8:00 pm

Permits have been filed with the Department of Buildings for another new hotel in Lower Manhattan. 215 Pearl Street will have 39 stories and 320 hotel rooms, although the permits are pending due to the review process.

The building will be occupied by two Marriott hotels, a Residence Inn and a Courtyard. The Residence Inn will take up the building's upper floors and have 120 rooms, while the Courtyard will be on the bottom floors and have 200 rooms.

The architect of record, Nobutaka Ashihara, actually designed another dual-Marriott hotel that's currently rising in the city as well--1715 Broadway.
Sad that some very old buildings were lost to this mediocrity:

This is U/C. It's too ugly to bother posting the photos.

I may be a fan of modernism, but I see no beauty in this building.

1715's architect designed this? What a mistake. I was sure it was a Kaufman design or something...

Fidi's New Sheraton Is 'Terrible,' Less Metallic Than Expected

Quote:
The long-dormant Four Points by Sheraton on Platt and Pearl streets got revived in 2012, and now it's almost complete. Initial renderings of the 264-roomer left us wondering about the lack of windows, but it's hard to know until the building has risen. And lo, it has. Thanks to a tipster who shot the photo above right, who wrote in that the structure is almost done, "with the structure and most of the facade now complete." Oh, the tipster also called it "terrible."

Watch this corner, because listen: "Now the lot right at the corner of Platt & Pearl has switched from just construction staging area to a construction site all its own, as they've started on the foundation for the Marriott at 215 Pearl, which will be even taller, but with the same tiny windows and a much more hostile blank facade on Pearl.

It's pretty bad.... and the other hotel nearby being worse just wondering what is it that the city just allows these aesthetic failures to crop up? The renderings made it look decent and interesting but so far what it really looks like just is so deflating.... not everything has to be a masterpiece but when some truly special old buildings get demolished for this modernist monstrosity and the trend seems to be continuing, well in these cases maybe the NIMBY'S have a point.

The sad thing is compared to the horrible towers(probably built in the garbage time of the 60's or 70's) to the foreground and the background, it looks like they're trying something different... if it clearly appeared very close to the renderings, it would be a nice change of style but the color scheme and lack of windows make it downright depressing... don't think the unveiling of the base floors(still covered up by the dark screening) will make any positive difference.

Well, the one that's rising is pretty bad, yeah, but the one rendered in the first post is kind of hilarious in a "what were they thinking?"-sort of way. I mean, who wants to live in a tower with windows the size of postage stamps?

6 Platt St. is the nearly complete 27 stories Four Points By Sheraton abutting what will be the 39 story 215 Pearl St. (dual Marriott brands). In this render of 6 Platt, you see the party wall between the two towers as envisioned:
