Another even taller hotel just announced today. Add in (hopefully) the Market8 casino and Philly will be flush with new hotel towers!

Double Identity for W and Element Hotels on Chestnut Street



Quote:
Remember the W and Element Hotels proposed for the vacant lot on 15th and Chestnut Street, smack-dab next to the ritzy Residences at the Ritz-Carlton? Well, PlanPhilly has the scoop on the breakout of their double-hotel, which includes 295 rooms at the traditional (and four-star) W component and 460 rooms for the extended stay Element by Westin. Developer Brook Lenfest, who successfully received a $33M Tax Increment Financing package from City Council for the project, will present the plans to the neighborhood sometime next week. The entire thing will be managed by Starwood, contain a 1,700 square foot retail space at 15th and Chestnut Street and seek also LEED Certification.

[...]

Construction is expected to take three years and be finished in the fall of 2017. Last time we checked in with the project, crews were reportedly on site testing the soil and snapping before and after pics in preparation for future construction work.

It reminds me of the waterfalls at Trump Tower.

W Hotel Construction Begins


phillymag

Quote:
Preliminary work has begun on the $280 million W Hotel at 1441 Chestnut St. in Center City.

Tutor Perini Building Corp. has equipment on the site and is readying it for the 52-story tower that will total 780,000 square feet. Once completed, it will have 700 rooms of which 240 rooms will be dedicated under the W Hotel flag and 460 rooms under the Element by Westin flag.

It's early in the process. "We're looking at sensitive areas of the foundation before we dig the entire hole," said Matt Morgan of Tutor Perini's Philadelphia office. "We could start as early as next month depending on what they find."

It definitely is moving forward. Chestlen Development, an entity controlled by Brook Lenfest, is the developer. The hotel is expected to be completed by October 2017.
