Plans filed by Chetrit in April of 2016 detail a 32-story tower rising more than 400 feet tall. The architect of record is Stonehill & Taylor, whose portfolio includes MOXY Times Square and the NoMad Hotel, and drawings show the tower will employ a 20-foot-long cantilever at the 8th floor that will hang over Cornell’s holdings. The cellar and first two levels will hold approximately 15,000-square-feet of retail space with 23- and 15-foot high ceilings. Winick Realty Group is handling the marketing of the space for which the renderings shown were obtained.
Address: 255 West 34th Street, New York, NY 10001
Description: The main rendering shows a podium section with a two-story grid and frame of rectangular street-facing open-air voids that offer views of West 34th Street. Retail and office components will occupy the cellar, first, and second floors. Above is a setback and an even tighter grid of floor-to-ceiling windows that slightly protrude from the walls of the hotel. A cantilever on the western elevation extends outward, but within the property footprint. This cantilever is positioned between the podium and the hotel floors and within what looks like the mechanical floors of the structure, as shown with the tall, narrow row of dark, rectangular-shaped voids.
