Progress at the future Ace-bankrolled Jarmulowsky hotel is at snail speed. And most of it behind Fort Knox strong security. But what about the six-story annex planned for its western flank?

Remember that 60 Canal Street (aka 8 Allen) was demolished nearly two years ago to make way for the 9,876 square-foot add-on, and remained an empty pit for the duration. Excavation and buttressing had been the primary order after obtaining approval for a change to commercial zoning. And now progress next door is palpable.

As of this week, the budding replacement structure sits at four stories. It’ll reach 83 feet into the downtown sky, and feature office space on each floor, according to permits filed with the DOB.

Ron Castellano is the architect behind the entire hotel conversion project at the Jarmulowsky. Plans call for 108 rooms, rooftop access, and the return of the crowning cupola.
