The Landmarks Preservation Commission approved architect Morris Adjmi’s designs for a 14-story hotel at 1162 Broadway near 27th Street in NoMad.
The property would be composed of brick, metal and glass, and have a facade with an outline of glazed bricks. Commissioner Michael Devonshire described it as “really a spectacular approach.” The Historic Districts Council also supported it, saying the design “nicely blends into the context of the Madison Square North Historic District while subtly expressing its modernity.”
Massage parlor Spa Valley has occupied the two-story building, which would be demolished as part of the project.
In October, Adjmi’s Flatiron condo project at 7 West 21st Street won Landmarks approval. The architect, however, has been focused on several condo projects in Tribeca, including 83 Walker Street and 403 Greenwich Street. [Curbed] — Mark Maurer
