A new look at a hotel that will be built at 245 West 34th Street is now available.

Gene Kaufman designed the 17-story mixed-use building that will go upt on the site, as reported by The Real Deal. The building will include 8,257 square feet of retail and nearly 37,000 square feet of hotel space, according to New York YIMBY.

The Chetrit Group, together with Brooklyn-based Cornell Realty Management, bought 245 and 247 West 34th Street at the beginning of the year for $31.5 million.

Over the summer a two-alarm fire swept through the existing property on the site, damaging bridal gowns at a nearby Reem Acra store.

The hotel, which will house 180 guest rooms, will be shorter than most other buildings on 34th Street, the website reported. Most of the tower’s massing will be withdrawn from the sidewalk. Construction is expected to be completed in 2016. [NY YIMBY] Claire Moses
