This project is going so fast! When I saw the picture with the white cladding I was like no way. But thanks for pointing that out romanamerican, I'm glad it's only for a small part of the project.

Hell's Kitchen Yotel Annoys the Hex Out of Neighbors



Friday, March 5, 2010, by Sara


Quote:
We got a hint earlier this week that the hotel portion of the Related Companies' mixed-use hotel/rental tower at 440 West 42nd Street would be a Yotel, the first U.S. installment of the European pod hotel chain. The 669-room hotel does, indeed, appear to be happening as rumored.

A tipster sends in the above shot with a note: "Looks like the Yotel design you posted for 440 W 42nd is accurate—the nauseating, foamy-looking hexagons have started going up. I can already envision that Yotel neon sign blaring 24 hours and doing to me what Kenny Roger's Roasters did to Kramer." The 170-square-foot rooms behind the foamy hexagons are supposed to be $200-$250 per night. And may be some of the few places in the neighborhood where those hexagons aren't visible, in which case, interesting marketing strategy!

I was thinking a Tokyo style red-light district theme was employed here. Maybe that is the customer base this hotel seeks to cater to?
