Smile NEW YORK | 305 West 48th Street | 303 FT | 27 FLOORS

27-Story Hotel Set To Rise on West 48th St. Parking Lot



Quote:
A 27-story hotel is slated to rise on the site of a parking lot on West 48th Street, records show.

Bright Management filed for permits Friday to build a 211-room hotel at 305 W. 48th St., between Eighth and Ninth avenues, city Department of Buildings records show.

The parking lot sits between the Italian eatery Patzeria Family & Friends and Sombrero Mexican Restaurant.

Gene Kaufman Architect is designing the 73,000-square-foot building, a spokeswoman for the firm confirmed Tuesday.

The developer plans to break ground on the hotel in August, though the operator has yet to be determined, the spokeswoman said.


The DOB has yet to approve the project, records show.

Bright Management did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Tuesday.

It's nice to see another parking lot in Midtown bite the dust, but why god, does it have to be Gene Kaufman?

Kaufman-Designed 305 West 48th Street Revealed In Hell’s Kitchen



Quote:
The hotel will be themed around Broadway Theater, and will be occupied by a boutique brand. Permits list David Schwartz of Bright Management, Inc., as the developer, and show that the 27-story building will stand 303 feet to its roof, with 211 rooms within.

The total floor area will measure 73,096 square feet, within which 59,132 square feet will be occupied by hotel space. The building will be setback from the street, with a fairly nondescript envelope above the entrance.

A statement by Gene Kaufman describes his involvement as follows:

I embrace the challenge of helping launch a new hotel brand, an exciting undertaking that requires a thoughtful and deliberate approach from a design standpoint. The aesthetics are critical in setting the structural and design tones for the brand, particularly as it seeks to establish itself against the backdrop of the colorful theater scene it calls home.
