It is no longer a skyscraper if it ends up 20-23 floors, it may not even be a high rise!

I'm surprised that such a short building has survived this long in this part of New York, and even more surprised that now that it's finally being replaced it's by a tower that's so short.

Cantilevering Hotel to Replace Parsons School of Design

http://ny.curbed.com/archives/2014/0..._of_design.php


Quote:
A partnership of Soho Properties, MPH Real Estate Services, and Hampshire Hotels Management LLC purchased Parsons The New School for Design at 560 Seventh Avenue last October for over $93 million, and have plans to raze the building that currently stands at the site and replace it with just what Times Square needed: another hotel. Unlike all those other Times Square hotels, however, this one will feature a fairly ambitious design from architecture firm SOMA. Separated into four distinct structural cubes, or "volumes," the building will feature a 20,000-square-foot, three-story retail space at the bottom, hotel suites (shrouded in a metal screen facade) in the lower middle, the hotel amenities (sky lobby, restaurant, pool, lounge area) in the upper middle, and more superfancy hotel suites at the top. There will also be a common area on the roof and three planted terraces. This will be Hampshire's third Dream Hotel in Manhattan.

A historic 50+ year old mid-century modern art school building will be destroyed for this circa-2003 style random clad monstrosity.

Shame.


This had the Mad-Men, Helvetica vibe all over it.

Update-- breathe a sigh of relief

Cantilevering Hotel to Replace Parsons School of Design [UPDATE: Actually, Not]
Thursday, May 1, 2014, by Jeremiah Budin



Quote:
UPDATE: A rep for Soho Properties reached out to let us know that the SOMA renderings and design in question were created as concept images and will not be used for the hotel. Instead, the building will be designed by Stonehill and Taylor and will include, in addition to the hotel and retail, space for the Garment Center Congregation. Also, the sale of the site closed last month and the purchase and development will cost a combined $300 million. Curbed regrets the errors.

I didn't realize that Gamal controls this project. I have high hopes for this in light of his great plans for the downtown tower.

El-Gamal and partners buying air rights for Dream Hotel

Deal will ramp up 560 Seventh Avenue's size by 20 percent
March 12, 2015 04:10PM
By Rich Bockmann

Sharif El-Gamal, MHP Real Estate Services and Hampshire Hotels Management, the developers of the Dream Hotel near Time Square, are planning on buying air rights from an untapped property in the Theater District that would ramp up the project’s total density by about 20 percent.
The development team is buying 19,772 square feet of air rights for its planned 237-key hotel at 560 Seventh Avenue from the Neil Simon Theater almost 10 blocks to the north, according to an application filed with the City Planning Department.
Representatives for the developers declined to comment, but a source familiar with the project said the per-square-foot price would be similar to the $300 per foot that Algin Management paid last year to buy 60,000 square feet of air rights from the Shubert Organization for its 59-story condo tower planned on the site of the former Roseland Ballroom. That would value the deal at about $6 million.
The Neil Simon Theater, landmarked in 1985, has never before sold any of its air rights, which total about 98,000 square feet. The theater’s owner is the Nederlander Organization, the Theater District’s second-largest landlord behind the Shubert Organization.
In an attempt to preserve the entertainment industry in the Theater District, the city created special zoning rules in 1998 that allow owners of certain “legitimate” (read: no peep show joints) properties to sell their rights to receiving sites further away than the limits imposed elsewhere in the city.
In the past seven years, the Shubert Organization has reaped more than $50 million from its air rights, money it has invested in several bank branches as well as McDonald’s and KFCs in suburban locations.
El-Gamal was represented by James Tamborlane of MHP Real Estate Services and Neederlander was represented in-house.

El-Gamal files permits for new Dream Hotel 29-story tower at 560 Seventh Avenue will have 243 hotel rooms

It may be the only place in town where you can visit the synagogue and nightclub without ever leaving the building.

Sharif El-Gamal’s Soho Properties has filed plans for a 29-story hotel tower at 560 Seventh Avenue, according to Department of Buildings records. The Stonehill & Taylor-designed building, located on the corner of 40th Street and Seventh Avenue, will span 118,508 square feet and have 243 hotel rooms, according to the permits.

Plans for the new building include a synagogue for the Garment Center Congregation, which will have its lobby on the first floor and have sanctuary space on two sub cellar levels. Retail space will be on the cellar level, first and second floors. The 28th floor will hold a nightclub, and there will be restaurants on the third, fourth and 29th floors.

El-Gamal is partnering with MHP Real Estate Services and Hampshire Hotels Management on the project. It will be Hampshire’s third Dream Hotel in Manhattan, joining 210 West 55th Street and the ultra-trendy Dream Downtown at 355 West 16th Street.

Soho and MHP paid about $62 million for the site in 2013. The partners are angling to buy Theater District air rights which would let them increase the project’s total density by about 20 percent, as The Real Deal reported earlier this month.

This stuff is going to look dated by the time it's completed.

A new set of renderings for the proposed hotel have been released and it looks much better than anything else that has been proposed. Here's the article: http://therealdeal.com/blog/tag/dream-hotel/

First Full Look at Stonehill & Taylor's New Dream Hotel Coming to Times Square
December 16, 2016
Quote:
Hampshire Hotels’ Dream Hotel has been crafting a brand more innovative and sexier the those of its peers. Over in Times Square, on a corner site previously occupied by an academic building belonging to Parsons The New School for Design, a new 29-story, 238-key Dream Hotel is readying to rise. The developers, led by Sharif El-Gamal’s Soho Properties, have enlisted Stonehill & Taylor Architects as designers of the 375-foot tall building. The team has drawn up a hi-tech glass tower that tastefully reflects the cacophony of Times Square.
