Construction is moving along smoothly on the Pendry Hotel, aka 4 Manhattan West. The reinforced concrete superstructure of the 21-story Midtown West development has risen past the halfway mark, and installation of its distinctive wavy façade has begun on the northern and western elevations. The mixed-use project, which is designed by Skidmore Owings & Merrill and developed by Brookfield Properties, is slated to offer 164 guest rooms and a selection of condominiums on its upper floors.
Façade work is underway at 12 East 48th Street on what will become a 161-room Hilton Grand Vacation Hotel. Located in Midtown East between Madison Avenue and Fifth Avenue, the reinforced concrete superstructure has already topped out and the curtain wall on the northern elevation is beginning to rise above the ground floor. Designed by Handel Architects, the bright metallic frames that surround the building's windows will form a subtly oscillating geometric pattern. Hidrock Realty is the developer of the project.
