Marriott’s 18-Story Moxy Hotel Tops out on the Bowery
The Bowery skyline is again altered, as the new Moxy hotel just reached the top.
The superstructure – construction of which had been on pause during the initial phase of the pandemic – now sits at eighteen stories. Joining the sky-high company of the Wyndham Garden just down the Bowery.
As reported, the new Lighting District project at Bowery and Broome – developed by the Lightstone Group just across from the Sohotel – will deliver 303 guest rooms, lobby bar, and a gym. All spread across roughly 85,831 square-feet of space. There are also plans for a basement lounge, which is sure to have neighbors skittish.
Stonehill Taylor is the architect of record for the Marriott-label lodge, which is the same firm behind the Ace Hotel, Chelsea Moxy, and TWA Hotel at JFK Airport.
The press materials hype the Bowery newcomer as one that exhumes “downtown’s grit and glamour.” Duly noted.
Opening date is pegged at “late 2022.”
