Smile NEW YORK | 140 West 24th Street | 416 FT | 45 FLOORS

Permits Filed For 45-Story Hotel At 140 West 24th Street, Chelsea



Quote:
Chelsea’s hotel boom has been gobbling up whatever under-built properties remain in the neighborhood, and now that is happening at 140 West 24th Street, between Sixth and Seventh Avenues, where new building applications were filed yesterday. Sam Chang is developing a new 45-story and 416-foot-tall tower on the property, which is naturally going to be designed by neighborhood go-to, Gene Kaufman.

The total construction area will measure 172,640 square feet, and within that, 142,949 square feet will be designated commercial space. That will be comprised of various amenities including a dining area and kitchens on the cellar and first floors, and 508 hotel rooms up above. At an average size of about 270 square feet, those are on the smaller side.

Design specifics have not yet been released, but with Kaufman at the helm, something unconventionally conventional is all but assured. Demolition permits for the existing three-story structure were approved in January, and with Sam Chang at the helm, the project will probably go vertical sooner than later.

Its like they took the model of a "NYC-like" city building model from a 1996 video game and proposed to build it.

Where is the self-respect when these atrocities are allowed to be built to stand? Those in power to review proposals need stricter rules for design. Good grief.

All of these budget hotel streets are great sites for nice, clever and beautiful infill buildings... it's squandered opportunity after squandered opportunity. Something has to be done about this.

Meh....IMO It could look decent if the right color and facade materials are used. The tank coverings---I assume that's what those two things are--are okay.

The scourge of these horrible setbacks has got to be remedied.
