Construction Pauses On Peter Poon Architects’ 58 West 39th Street, In Midtown

Quote:
Work appears to be stalled on H Hotel W39, a 447-foot-tall project from Peter F. Poon Architects at 58 West 39th Street in Midtown. Developed by Wei Hong Hu of H Hotel LLC, the 29-story building is located between Fifth and Sixth Avenue just south of Bryant Park.

Recent photos from Tectonic show the reinforced concrete superstructure has risen just one story since YIMBY’s last update in late January. The formwork and rebar for the columns and floor slabs currently hover around the third floor and are still within the confines of the two abutting structures.

58 West 39th Street will yield 56,000 square feet with 41,500 square feet of commercial space, 65 hotel rooms, meeting rooms, a fitness center, and a hotel lobby along West 39th Street. The rendering depicts a very unconventional massing with a dramatic cantilever on its eastern profile. The glass-clad structure features rounded corners throughout and culminates in a dome-like parapet. The northern elevation, not seen in the rendering, will likely be a flat wall of glass that faces Bryant Park, and the eastern profile appears to feature an outdoor terrace.

The closest subways are the B, D, F, M, and 7 trains at the 42nd Street-Bryant Park station. Times Square is a short walk from the hotel, while the Port Authority Bus Terminal is only two avenues away on Eighth Avenue.

It’s unclear when progress will pick up or when 58 West 39th Street will be completed. YIMBY spotted a target of winter 2020, as noted on the construction fence, though sometime in 2021 is more likely.

No significant movement as of July 2020.

Cantilevering H Hotel W39 Remains On Hold At 58 West 39th Street In Midtown

Quote:
Work still appears stalled on H Hotel W39, a 447-foot-tall hotel at 58 West 39th Street in Midtown. Designed by Peter F. Poon Architects and developed by Wei Hong Hu of H Hotel LLC, the 29-story building is set to feature a radical design with a dramatic cantilever giving way to a tapered glass dome.

Recent photos show that construction at the site, located one block south of Bryant Park between Fifth and Sixth Avenues, is at about the same state as in our last visit in late May. The reinforced concrete superstructure currently sits around the third story and is laden with orange netting, steel rebar, and wooden formwork. It’s unclear what is causing the delay in construction progress.

58 West 39th Street is planned to yield 41,500 square feet of commercial space, 65 hotel rooms, meeting rooms, a fitness center, and a hotel lobby. The lower portion features a conventional massing before the cantilever around the midpoint, above which the structure cuts a very distinctive profile with rounded glass corners culminating in a gently tapered pinnacle. The entire envelope consists of a reflective glass curtain. The top floors are likely to provide views of Bryant Park and the Midtown skyline, and the project would certainly stand out as an ultra-modern addition to the surrounding historic buildings like the American Radiator Building at 40 West 40th Street, which is directly to the north.

Just a quick spot check and still on-hold.

Construction Resumes On H Hotel W39 At 58 West 39th Street In Midtown, Manhattan



Quote:
Construction has resumed on H Hotel W39, a 29-story hotel at 58 West 39th Street in Midtown. Designed by Peter F. Poon Architects and developed by Wei Hong Hu of H Hotel LLC, the 447-foot-tall project had been stalled since the early months of 2020. City Cross Construction Corp. is the general contractor for the structure, whose design features a radical cantilever that gives way to a tapered glass dome. The footprint of the tower rests on a relatively narrow plot between Fifth and Sixth Avenues, just south of Bryant Park.

At the time of our last update in August 2020, the reinforced concrete superstructure remained at just three stories high. Now progress has reached the ninth floor and we can begin to see the fenestration of square and rectangular voids between the thick perimeter columns.

It was last reported that 58 West 39th Street would yield 41,500 square feet of commercial space, 65 hotel rooms, meeting rooms, a fitness center, and a hotel lobby. The overall façade will be composed of a uniform glass curtain wall. We can expect the very top floors of the building to offer views of Bryant Park and the Midtown skyline. The nearest subways are the B, D, F, M, and 7 trains at the 42nd Street-Bryant Park station.

A revised completion date for 58 West 39th Street is unclear at the moment, though YIMBY predicts work to be finished sometime in the latter half of 2022 or early 2023 at the latest.

It would appear that the design has changed slightly

^^^

In rendering #2, not sure what's up with that square blank wall that just pops up in between facades. Hopefully its just the rendering. Looks like the rendering must of encountered an error code during that section.
