From L to R: Virgin Hotel, Moxy Hotel Chelsea, 132 West 28th Street,Marriott Renaissance Hotel From L to R: Virgin Hotel, Moxy Hotel Chelsea, 132 West 28th Street,Marriott Renaissance Hotel
A wide swath of Chelsea was once known as the Flower District, yet today it shrank to a single block of West 28th Street between Sixth and Seventh Avenues. Even there, the nine-to-five sidewalk jungle of plants on display shares space with an ever-growing number of hotels. Several have spring up like wildflowers during the 2010’s, yet many more are still on the way across the neighborhood.

This hotel crop, enabled by the neighborhood’s predominantly commercial zoning, services everyone from the city’s ever-growing hordes of tourists to executives and other techies traveling to the emerging technology hub, dubbed “Silicon Alley,” that is also flourishing in the neighborhood with many outposts of West Coast companies. Below, see a rundown of recently finished and in-the-works new hotels.

Address: 112 West 25th Street

Developer Lam Generation built a new Marriott Renaissance hotel measuring 450 feet high and 140,000 square feet on the site where the Antiques Garage flea market once stood. With the help of some unused neighboring development rights, the building will be one of the tallest in the area. Stonehill Taylor (architecture firm from the aforementioned Moxy Hotel) is designing the interior, while architect Nobutaka Ashihara is designing the building.

Interiors designer Stonehill Taylor was inspired by "the unique history of its locale in Manhattan’s Garment District and Flea Market Row,” and Indiewalls nods to the artistry of Chelsea with a curated art collection. Italian restaurant Cotto will open in the early spring, and the bi-level pool and rooftop lounge, Somewhere Nowhere, will welcome guests in the warmer months.

The dynamic hotelier/architect duo, Sam Chang and Gene Kaufman, strike again, this time at 292 Fifth Avenue between East 30th and East 31st streets. Continuing to build his hotel dynasty, Sam Chang closed on 292 Fifth Avenue in March 2017 for $42.4 million. The 21-story, mixed-use building includes 141 rooms, with 17 residences on the top five floors. Some reports claim the property will debut as a Le Meridien hotel, which would make it the only one in New York following the closing of the Midtown property in January 2018.

Floors / Room Count: 23 floors / 141 rooms

Architect: Perkins Eastman

Developer: Flaneur Hospitality

Shortly after founding Flaneur Hospitality, Alex Ohebshalom turned his attention to 250 Fifth Avenue, the McKim, Meade & White bank building erected in 1908, well before NoMad was a twinkle in developers' eyes. Architect Perkins Eastman will restore the facade, and a ground-up development of a 23-story tower totaling over 130,000 square feet will also take shape.

According to PBDW, although the initial Landmark Commission reviews were deemed not favorable, they “uncovered a 1911 New York Times article describing a proposal for a ‘tall loft building’ on the site. By an extraordinary coincidence, our own offices were in a nearby ‘tall loft building’ built in 1913.” PBDW was able to successfully convince the Landmarks Commission that a tall building was possible and that their design was appropriate to the historic district.

Guests will enter through a former carriage house, and the ground and second floors of the hotel will include a café-restaurant. A full 125-150 seat restaurant with a bar and an open terrace is planned for the roof of the existing building and there will be an event space with terraces overlooking Madison Square Park and lower Manhattan on the top floor of the 23-story tower.

Two blocks from the Ace Hotel and on the same block as the two new Marriott hotels, New Jersey-based importer-exporter, Frank Ng originally filed an application to build a 32-story Aloft Hotel outpost at 132 West 28th Street with JWC Architects.

The proposal states the hotel will have 203 rooms over 125,000 square feet and rise 326 feet high. According to Real Estate Weekly, “extended-stay units are likely in the works.” On the ground floor, there will be a lounge and bar. The second floor will have a fitness center and outdoor terrace. There will be a conference room on the third floor and a club on the 30th. Ng bought the building for $14.07 million in 2007.

Floors / Room Count: 35 floors / 343 rooms

Architect: Stonehill Taylor

Developer: Lightstone Group

Opening Date: March 2019

In a partnership with Marriott International, the Lightstone Group has erected another millennial magnet, the Moxy Hotel at 105-109 West 28th Street. In contrast with many of its dime-a-dozen hotel counterparts, the Moxy displays a refined aesthetic that pays homage to its unique surroundings.

According to the architect’s press release, Stonehill Taylor "was inspired by the surrounding floral district, the facade is corten steel and glass. The entrance to the hotel will be through the loading berth, which will feature a variety of planters.”

The 35-story building counts 343 guest rooms as well as meeting rooms, grab and go market, two rear yard terraces and a sky lounge with a retractable roof. It opened in spring 2019, and Feroce Ristorante was not far behind. The Times Square Moxy opened last year and more NYC Moxys are in the works.
