The adjacent properties on 6th were recently acquired. I thought it was by a separate developer. The 6th Ave entrance will be pretty nice if, in fact, it's part of this hotel. One rendering shows that it will be. The other
.doesn't.

Even if that occurs, the project is otherwise quite nice and thus only earns one "Gene Kaufman".

There are several buildings on the southwest corner of this block that are not part of this development. If they didn't acquire the air rights from those buildings, there will be a blank wall facing the 6th ave side. Those buildings are just as crummy as the ones that are being torn down for the hotel.

Gene Kaufman can't design something like this even in his sleep.

This area is a diamond in the rough; it has so many stunning old buildings.

Will this hotel prevent naughty happenings in the bedroom?

There was a proposal about seven years ago in St. Paul very similar to this. The design was by David Adjaye. Really wish it had been built.

There is a 1 storey building (right of picture, not shown) has been sold with another property for $100m today. I just don't know if the garage is part of this assemblage. Anyway, glad to see this will go soon to make way for another development.

Hotel developer buys NoMad buildings for $100M Buyer is headed by former Credit Suisse manager http://therealdeal.com/blog/2015/02/....6HUHYynT.dpuf



Quote:
Sitting across the street from Mocal Enterprises’ condo conversion of the Centurian Building and caddy-corner to the NoMad Hotel, 1185 Broadway is home to a one-story taxpayer and is surrounded on two sides by its L-shaped neighbor, home to a seven-story parking garage. Together, the two properties front 46 feet on Broadway and 189 feet on the street. They combine for a total of 181,660 buildable square feet, according to PropertyShark. With the $100 million price tag, works out to roughly $550 per buildable square foot.

I'm not a fan of the building's architecture, but it's better than what it's replacing. Also, I'm glad that handsome high-rise at 43 West 29th Street isn't included.

The more I look at it actually the more it looks like buildings that ended up with a cheap plasticky spandrel clad. The dated random cladding doesn't help either.
