Back in November, YIMBY reported on permits for a new hotel coming to the Financial District, at 11 Stone Street. And now, we can reveal the design for the building, thanks to new on-site signage.
The site’s developer is Premier Emerald LLC, and Shiming Tam is the architect of record. The 27-story building will have 143 rooms spanning approximately 57,000 square feet, and surprisingly, it appears the project’s design will actually be palatable.
Unlike most new hotels rising in the Financial District, 11 Stone will feature a minimal setback from the street-wall, keeping the block’s urban fabric intact. And above its base, the building will have some semblance of ornamentation, which is even rarer for new hotels, as most tend towards austere repetition of the most value-engineered floor-plates possible.
While the building’s roof height is 275 feet above the street, counting the water tank-encapsulating rooftop gives the project a minor boost to 295 feet. Even at that height, the structure will be swallowed by the man-made canyons of the Financial District.
Existing structures at 11-13 Stone Street are almost gone, and per the on-site signage, completion is expected in June of 2018.
