Permits have been filed with the Department of Buildings for another new hotel in Lower Manhattan. 215 Pearl Street will have 39 stories and 320 hotel rooms, although the permits are pending due to the review process.

The building will be occupied by two Marriott hotels, a Residence Inn and a Courtyard. The Residence Inn will take up the building's upper floors and have 120 rooms, while the Courtyard will be on the bottom floors and have 200 rooms.

Not thrilled with that design - very cold looking.

Lower Manhattan already has enough of these ugly public housing looking buildings.

The white facade isn't half bad with how they asymmetrically break up the windows to give you something interesting and fresh to look at. But that view from the other angle is just plain horrible.

The white is 6 Platt, a different hotel that is also going up.

Anyone notice that this combo of hotels, a Courtyard and a Residence Inn, is the same combo going up on 54th Street at 1715 Broadway? I don't get why Lower Manhattan designs for anything that's not a showpiece building have to be hideous. Especially since they commissioned a much better tower housing the exact same pair of hotels for Midtown. Even the design for LA near the Staples Center is better than this.

My guess is that the financial district isn't sexy enough - yet. Midtown gets its fair share of hotel crap going up, just not quite as bad as this

Even the low wealth residential buildings in the old Simcity game look better than this crapola.

Pictures above are not of 215 Pearl tower but 6 Platt St which is right next to it. 215 Pearl has not started yet and 6 Platt St is still under construction but the thread has been moved to completed projects so I will post some pictures of Platt tower here.

Dear god, who the hell approved that thing?

It almost reminds me of a crumbling tenement building.
