A New Hotel is Coming to NYC's Bryant Park
A hotel/condo mixed use building that was originally planned for a former parking lot opposite Bryant Park back in pre-recession 2008 is back on the scene.
According to New York Yimby, new building permits have been filed for 12-20 West 40th Street, indicating a 32-story building with a planned 274 residences and a 213-room hotel spanning the first fourteen floors.
We're pretty sure the folks at the Bryant Park Hotel can't be too happy about that. If it helps, at least they were first?
But we're a little excited for this project, mainly because the architects listed are the lovely Stonehill + taylor, most recently of NYLO NYC and the Novotel Times Square's redesign; previously of Ace New York and The NoMad. Considering that they recently dropped the Greenwich Street Hotel project from their website, we are happy to see them rebound with another hotel. No word when it will actually open but we'd guess sometime in 2016.
