Construction will start soon on Harry Gross’ 68-story hotel project, the Courtyard and Residence Inn Manhattan/Central Park at the northwest corner of Broadway and 54th Street, officials of his company, Granite Broadway Development and operator Marriott International told the New York Times.

The project will include a 378-room Courtyard by Marriott hotel and a 261-room Residence Inn by Marriott, both managed by Interstate Hotels and Resorts, the Times said. The hotels are slated to open in late 2013, and will feature ground-floor retail space, a leased restaurant on the second floor and a lounge and terrace with outdoor seating and views of Broadway on the fifth floor.

John Fox, senior vice president of hotel consulting company PKF Consulting USA, heralded the development as the largest new hotel project in New York since the 863-room Westin New York at Times Square opened in 2002.
