Marriott’s Moxy Hotel on the Bowery Begins 18-Story Ascent
The first elements of the new Moxy hotel on the Bowery are now visible.
Peeking above the tattered boards at Bowery is a network of structural steel beams.
Department of Buildings signage onsite promises a rather optimistic completion date of “spring 2022.” Given progress thus far, though, meeting the goal seems unrealistic.
As reported, the new Lighting District development will rise eighteen stories, deliver 300 guest rooms and a gym, all spread across roughly 85,831 square-feet of space.
Stonehill Taylor is the architect of record for the Marriott-label lodge, which is also behind the Ace Hotel, Chelsea Moxy, and TWA Hotel at JFK Airport.
Lightstone Group had acquired four adjacent properties on the east side of the Bowery at Broome Street back in August 2018. Two different owners sold out to the developers for a combined $56.6 million – 151 Bowery (Emmut Properties) and 145-149 Bowery (Gordon Lau).
All four buildings were historic, and dated back nearly two centuries. New law tenements plus a rear-yard “backhouse” likely from the late-1890s.
