Two big construction projects on the block bounded by Broadway and Eighth Avenue and 54th and 55th streets were given the go-ahead by the Department of Buildings yesterday, the New York Post reported.

As a result, Boston Properties’ 900,000-square-foot office tower at 250 West 55th Street will begin construction after a two-year hiatus and Joseph Moinian’s as yet unflagged, 34-story hotel at 237 West 54th Street, designed by Gene Kaufman, will rise on the site of a small building which is currently being demolished.

Law firm Morrison Foerster recently signed on for 200,000 square feet at the Boston Properties building.

As previously reported, some have their suspicions that Moinian filed his hotel plan purely to encourage the owners of a larger Marriott hotel project by Harry Gross’s Broadway Granite Development, at the corner of Broadway and 54th Street, to buy him out, the Post said. [Post, 1st item]
