Hyatt Sets Plans For Luxury Hotel

BY KRIS HUDSON

Hyatt Hotels Corp. intends to open its first luxury hotel in New York—a 210-room Park Hyatt—in a Midtown condominium tower under development by Extell Development Co.

In unveiling plans for the luxury hotel, set to open in 2012, Hyatt has gone from just one hotel in Manhattan—the Grand Hyatt in Midtown—at the start of this year to now having plans for six.

Hyatt last week announced two Hyatt hotels to be built by Hersha Hospitality Trust in Greenwich Village and Midtown next year. Those follow two of Hyatt's Andaz boutique hotels that opened this year in Downtown and Midtown locations. ...

Given the small floorplate of this tower, it should rise very quickly.

That's really a tiny site, with mid- and highrise buildings from different decades close around... hard to believe that this is going to be about twice as tall as the Central Park hotels in the background. But typically New York: in other cities, they'd clear the whole block for a supertall (but of course here are landmarks).

Anyway: finally another major skyscraper in Northern midtown after over five years (when AOL Time Warner, Bloomberg Tower and Hearst Tower were done, there wasn't much activity here) - but now there'll be the first supertall near Central Park, and Carnegy 57 will be a beauty!

In the last pic on the right, is that the Trump Tower.. the black one?
Construction is progressing quickly, which is special for New York construction.

Somewhere where those holes are, there has to be the core..

I hope we'll see it when they pour that part of the first floor...
I think that there's no core. This seems a traditional reinforced concret building, although it has no beams, just columns.

It simply impossible for a building of this height to not have a core of some kind. The moment connection between the floors and columns is not enough to resist the lateral forces that a 1000+ foot building would be subjected to during a hurricane or earthquake.

Yeah, I agree...Even a lot older buildings have cores...I mean, I can't imagine 300 m building without the core..

Anyway, this is some wery interesting construction...I wish we could see and learn more about it..

Really? Then look no farther then the Gramercy Residences at Century City in Makati, Metro Manila. 992ft. 302m, that has no core. It is supported only by structural columns around the outside of the frame. None the less, it is still unusual for a supertall to have no core. Obviously the architect(s) think it is stong enough.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the ESB coreless? That thing was strong enough to take an airplane

I may have exaggerated. When i said it was impossible for a skyscraper to built without a core. There are two very tall residential high-rises in Hong Kong that use several very large shear walls in place of a core. The first one is called Highcliff it 828 feet tall but only 60 wide. The second is called the summit it's 722 feet tall.

It is hard to believe the speed this one is going up, considering the agonizing pace on some WTC towers downtown.
