Last month, YIMBY brought you news of Tribeca Associates’ planned 26-story, 228-key hotel at 143 Fulton Street/26 Ann Street, in the Financial District, and now crews are prepping the existing three-story building for demolition, courtesy of a YIMBY reader. Retail space will be located on the first three floors in the 88,447 square-foot building, and SLCE Architects is the architect of record. The new building’s design has not yet been revealed.

26-Story, LEED-Certified Hotel Coming to the Financial District
OCTOBER 29, 2015
Here’s our first look at Tribeca Associates upcoming 26-story hotel at 143 Fulton Street in the Financial District, where demolition at the site is already underway. The 90,000- square-foot tower designed by SLCE Architects will contain 228 rooms, ground-level retail, and typical hotel amenities such as a fitness center and a bar/lounge on the third floor. Hotel suites, found on floors 5 through 25, average ten per floor. The building will also seek LEED accreditation.
The rendering of the tower is posted on the site of law firm Mona Shah & Associates, who specialize in structuring, configuring, and preparing EB-5 projects (immigrant investor visas). Tribeca Associates was also a partner in developing the Baccarat Hotel & Residences in Midtown, the conversion project Artisan Lofts in Tribeca, and the Smyth Hotel & Residences.
Revealed: 26-Story, 228-Key Hotel At 143 Fulton Street, Financial District
When we last checked in on the site of Tribeca Associates’ planned 26-story, 228-key hotel at 143 Fulton Street, between Broadway and Nassau Street in the Financial District, demolition of its three-story commercial building was underway. Since then, the building has been knocked down, and thanks to a YIMBY reader, we have a new look at the coming hotel.
While another publication has shown off a rendering of the Fulton Street face of the coming hotel, the image to the right (click it to enlarge) shows off the Ann Street façade. The hotel is a through-block project. The design, by SLCE Architects, features a very airy portions at floors one through three, followed by a fairly straight-forward many-windowed design the rest of the way up until a mechanical floor.
The building will encompass 88,447 square feet. That includes retail on the first and second floors. So, we can’t give you a good estimate of the size of each hotel room.
The cellar will have a luggage storage room and room for nine bicycles. The third floor will have more lobby space, plus a an exercise room and a lounge and bar.
Hotel rooms will begin on the fifth floor with 10 rooms, followed by 11 rooms each on floors six through 24, and nine rooms on the 25th floor.
