NEW YORK | 790 Seventh Ave. | 161m | 528ft | 46 fl | Pro

An existing 23 story hotel at Times Square is to see a 23 story addition that will double the building's height.

More stories, maybe apartments for The Manhattan at Times Square Hotel

Are apartments coming to The Manhattan at Times Square Hotel?

The 790 Seventh Avenue hotel, between West 51st and West 52nd streets, will be expanding vertically, according to a plan exam application filed today.

The proposal would add 23 stories to the existing 23-story building. The Schedule A filing indicates that the new levels would be occupied by apartments — 121 total. Morris Adjmi Architects is the architect of record for the expansion.

Starwood Hotels & Resorts sold the 665-key hotel in 2012 for $275 million in cash, the New York Observer reported. The buyers were affiliates of Rockpoint Group, Goldman Sachs’ Real Estate Principal Investment Area and Highgate Holdings. Under the deal, Highgate would operate the hotel.

I agree. Why waste good money on such an awful building? The POS belongs in some Chinese interior frontier capital.

Indeed, it's 50 years old but the Taft Hotel on the other side of the street looks way better even though it's 90 years old. There should be something that matches AXA Center.
