Smile NEW YORK | 842 Sixth Avenue | 315 FT | 25 FLOORS

World's Tallest Modular Hotel Coming to 842 Sixth Avenue in NoMad

A new 25-story AC Hotel by Marriott is planned for booming NoMad (North of Madison Square Park) at 842 Sixth Avenue. Judging from plans submitted to the city and images from the architect's website, the building may become the world's largest modular hotel, taking the crown away from the 19-story citizenM Bowery, that is set to open later this year. Renderings of the forthcoming tower depict a slick design courtesy of the award-winning architect and television host Danny Forster of DFDS. Best known as the host of the "Built it Bigger" series on the Science Channel, Forster was also tapped to design the AC Hudson Yards Hotel, renderings for which we revealed last year.

The site of the forthcoming AC NoMad Hotel is between West 30th and 29th Streets a few blocks south of Macy's and Herald Square. A marble-clad, 5-story structure on-site is currently being demolished. The lot is directly adjacent to The NOMA, a newly-built FX Fowle-designed condo, directly west of an under construction Virgin Hotel at 1225 Broadway, and across from the Eventi Hotel/Beatrice rentals, which opened in 2011.

According to permits filed back in December, the hotel will span 77,891 square feet of residential space and contain 168 rooms. Guests will enjoy plenty of amenities, which will include a reading lounge, fitness center, conference room, coffee bar, and "AC lounge," and many outdoor amenity spaces on the 3rd and 4th floor. The hotel rooms will occupy floors 5 through 25. Like the AC Hudson Yards Hotel, the architect of record is listed as Epstein Global.
The fabricator of the modular units point to Polish-based company DMDmodular. The firm's website shows off some AC Hotel modular prototypes and lists an unaddressed, equally-scaled NYC hotel as one of their upcoming projects. The page states, "Turn-key two modular hotel rooms, produced at our production facility within the first phase of the world's tallest modular hotel, which will be located in NYC. Each guest room will be based on a singular modular unit." Per the website, the firm guarantees up to 70% time saving due to production in a dry, factory controlled environment, and then transporting of the complete building parts to a fully prepared site, for a faster return on your investment.
