Now that the three buildings at 400 West 42nd Street is gone, the Friedman Group and Landis Group have released a rendering of the pod-style hotel they plan to put up. 

The tower is rumored to have 40 floors, a dozen more than the 28 originally reported. No Department of Buildings permits have been filed to confirm the number.

Plans call for the 220,000-square-foot hotel, near the corner of West 42nd Street and Ninth Avenue, to have 510 rooms that each have 140 square feet; the target price is $225 a night.

The building will have 38 larger extended-stay rooms as well as 25,000 square feet of retail, Friedman told The Real Deal back in February. [New York Yimby] Julie Strickland
