NEW YORK—A 44,000-sq.-ft. boutique hotel designed by Gene Kaufman Architect has topped out at 44 West 29th St..
The 18-story, 109-room property between Fifth and Sixth Aves., which has interiors by Studio Mai, is being developed by the Devli Group.
To enter the hotel, guests will traverse a bridge over a sunken garden, which a multilevel restaurant-and-lounge overlooks. A 740-sq.-ft. rooftop salon will feature a semi-circular bar with a retractable wall that opens to create a seamless indoor-outdoor experience. The top (18th) floor, lobby and lower level will offer an additional 2,700 sq. ft. of bar and lounge space.
Said Gene Kaufman, founder and principal of Gene Kaufman Architect, “The integration of multilevel interior and exterior spaces has never been done in New York City. This unique concept, which we developed for this hotel, will create a super-chic environment for guests in search of a new, stylish, trend-setting experience.”
