A Peter Poon-designed Le Soleil Hotel at 38 West 36th Street is rapidly sprouting, and the design has undergone a few changes. Zoning diagrams filed last April match the current version posted on Le Soleil Hotels’ website.

But renderings on-site, as noted by New York Yimby, differ from the drawings filed with the Department of Buildings. The renderings also differ from recent depictions of the structure on the hotel’s website.

The property, which is being developed by Canadian company Executive Resorts and Hotels, will be set back 12 feet from the street, and architectural changes to the upper levels give the property an “overall stump-like appearance,” according to New York Yimby.

The 162-room, 22-story hotel is slated for completion in March 2015. [NY Yimby]Julie Strickland
