Virgin Hotel’s Exterior Nearing Completion At 1225 Broadway, In NoMad




Quote:
The Virgin Hotel at 1225 Broadway in NoMad is steadily making its way toward completion. The glass curtain wall is closing in on the upper portions of the flat roof parapet, while more steel columns, beams, and metal decking for the podium section of the property have been inserted into place. There will be a total of about 300,000 square feet of newly built space, mostly being allocated towards the 460 hotel rooms. The podium will contain 90,000 square feet of retail. Lam Group is the developer of the property, and Sir Richard Branson of Virgin Group will be in charge of managing the address.

The top part of the building where the water towers and mechanical equipment are located have yet to be covered. For now they can be seen from afar. Meanwhile the angled envelope of the first few floors along Broadway, West 29th Street and West 30th Street is becoming more apparent. Part of the roof on the northern end of the property’s podium levels has also been completed. There will be an outdoor swimming pool, lounge areas, and a 22,000-square-foot golf store called Swingers: A Crazy Golf Club.

The best angle to see the building is either looking south on Broadway from Herald Square, or looking north from the same street but from NoMad. The height will comfortably fit within the growing and rapidly changing skyline of the neighborhood. NoMad is still undergoing a major transformation as other nearby hotels and commercial buildings are also under construction.

Completion of 1225 Broadway is expected sometime next year.

Worker fatally crushed in elevator at Midtown high-rise construction site

Quote:
A worker was crushed to death in an elevator at the site of billionaire Richard Branson’s future high-rise Virgin Hotel in Midtown Thursday afternoon.

The 24-year-old laborer was in a construction elevator on the 33rd floor at 1227 Broadway, near W. 30th St., when he was crushed about 3:10 p.m. by a metal saddle sticking out of the elevator shaft, cops said.

He died at the scene. Medics took two other people to NYU Langone Medical Center with minor injuries, an FDNY spokesman said.

Police have not yet released the worker’s name.

Construction on the 38-story hotel, nearly 500-foot hotel, which is being managed by hotel developer John Lam, began in 2015.

That was the location where the Bancroft Building use to sit. 29 and 5th.

This POS is rising in its place. Replacing a gem, with this.

Behind the 1185 Broadway aka Ritz Carlton in the foreground. This area has really seen an uptick in development within the last 5 years.
