permits indicate the tower will span 195,360 square feet, split between 313 rooms; the building will stand 42 stories tall, making it one of the larger budget-minded hotels to come to Midtown Manhattan in recent years.

This is happening and excavation is underway. It actually appears to go underneath of the street in the background!!!

It always astounds me how a 42 story hotel could grow without being noticed. This would be the tallest in many major American cities, but here it is lost among the other giants.
