NEW YORK | 577 9th Ave | 111m | 363ft | 28 fl | U/C




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

Previously:

This proposed tower was proposed before the crash. The small buildings on the site have been empty for years. The demolition fencing was erected recently.

An odd-looking box appears on the NY EB-5 website. it appears that the design is still valid.

The site is quite squalid and is a throw-back to the nadir of Times Square.

Yep, this is awful - but isn't there the farmer's market in here? Or it's right nearby - either way they have awesome produce. Tearing it down is definitely necessary, though!

Handel is the architect. His work is generally bland but rarely horrible, so the final product may be decent.

well, the render ain't much but we'll see. It will be an improvement when that wreck on the site is gone anyway.

So it's shovel-ready at this point. No new renders or updates about the project as yet...

The shape and the facade reminds me of this building in Bangkok.

Developers move to demolish buildings to construct 510-unit Times Square hotel




Quote:
Feb. 07 2013

A pair of developers is moving forward with plans to build a 510-room pod-style hotel project in Times Square, filing plans to demolish three low-rise buildings near the corner of West 42nd Street and Ninth Avenue to make way for a 28-story tower. Developers the Friedman Group and Landis Group are partnering to build the 220,000-square-foot project at 400 West 42nd Street on parcels they acquired for about $80 million before the market collapsed, Robert Friedman, a principal with the Friedman Group, told The Real Deal.

They filed plans Tuesday to demolish 571 Ninth Avenue, 573 Ninth Avenue and 406 West 42nd Street, all between one and four stories, city Department of Buildings data show.

Plans call for 140-square-foot hotel rooms with a targeted price of $225 per night. The building will also have 38 larger extended-stay hotel units, as well as 25,000 square feet of retail, Friedman said. No operator has been selected yet, nor have any retail tenants been lined up, he noted.

400 West 42nd Street demolished, hotel renderings released



Quote:
Now that the three buildings at 400 West 42nd Street is gone, the Friedman Group and Landis Group have released a rendering of the pod-style hotel they plan to put up.

The tower is rumored to have 40 floors, a dozen more than the 28 originally reported. No Department of Buildings permits have been filed to confirm the number. Plans call for the 220,000-square-foot hotel, near the corner of West 42nd Street and Ninth Avenue, to have 510 rooms that each have 140 square feet; the target price is $225 a night.

The building will have 38 larger extended-stay rooms as well as 25,000 square feet of retail, Friedman told The Real Deal back in February.

Handel was the architect for the original post-crash design. Not surprising if that's changed. This tower has been in perpetual limbo so it's nice to see some progress here.

it's unfortunate it loss some height; but as for the design change, i'm glad we are not getting that original proposal by Handel; It was an odd looking design

The first renderings are up for the future hotel at 400 Times Square, which recently underwent a design shift, with SLCE replacing Handel as the project’s architect of record. 400 Times Square Associates LLC is the developer, and the site has addresses at 400 West 42nd Street and 577 Ninth Avenue.
