Extell's Glassy "Hyatt Time Square" Soars
Extell Development's "Hyatt Times Square" is rising, and quickly. The future 53 story tower with 487 rooms was barely out of the ground last fall, but now towers over West 45th Street.The building is up to around 40 stories with close to 30 glassed. While this is not exactly Christian de Portzamparc masterwork like One57, it is after all Times Square, and it is a hotel, not a $6000 per square foot condo. The architect is SLCE for the exterior, and SPanN for the interiors. It is billed as a "4 Star" hotel with completion expected sometime in 2013.
