113 West 24th Street nearing completion in Chelsea, Manhattan
Construction is nearing completion at 113 West 24th Street, a 39-story Marriott hotel in the Midtown area of Manhattan in Chelsea. Designed by Stonehill & Taylor Architects and developed by Lam Generation, the latest 420-foot-tall reinforced concrete tower would have yielded 360 rooms, each averaging around 380 square feet each. Flintlock Construction Services, LLC is the general contractor for the project, which is located between Sixth and Seventh Avenues.
Since our last update at the end of January, work on the curtain wall has continued steadily. Black rectangular metal panels framing the edges of the main south elevation now surround the elegant floor-to-ceiling windows. You can see the protective blue film for the glass all peeled off and the curtains for each hotel room installed. The blank east and west sides are also finished with the dark casing.
The biggest change was the construction of the main entrance along West 24th Street. Above and behind the sidewalk scaffolding is a repeating series of white rectangular frames that lead to the main building itself. This new ensemble did not yet exist during the winter months, when the space between the columns around the mechanical floors and the great hall was still covered with makeshift temporary walls. Now a large wall of clear glass passes in front of the high ceilings. From a distance, the height and color of the structure pairs well with the other adjacent skyscrapers and residential hotels.
113 West 24th Street will span approximately 136,700 square feet, with ten rooms per floor starting on the fourth floor and extending up to the 41st floor. At the very top is a rooftop bar.
The completion date for 113 West 24th Street has been delayed and no final date has been announced. YIMBY expects by the end of the year or early 2022 as a possible timeline.
