There’s the American flag, signaling the apex of ascension for another unwanted Lower East Side hotel.

The nineteen-story CitizenM Hotel on the Bowery reached the top at the end of last week. Jutting upward like a middle finger to join the new area skyline. Well, part of the conjoined superstructure, at least; the first of two towering appendages is capped and covered with netting.

As previously reported, the completed hotel will boast 300 keys and requisite rooftop bar for the scenesters. Getting there hasn’t been easy, though. The contractor – Rinaldi Group – has faced several controversies during its tenure here. They were suspended in the wintertime after an investigation into the death of a construction worker at their Riu Hotel job site on West 46th Street, and the city revoked permits citywide; then there was the collapse of a perimeter sidewalk bridge; and plenty of stop-work orders.

How generic.

This is what the CitizenM will look like. Still no word on exact opening date for the lodge, though.
