Foundation work is now underway on the 38-story, 460-key Virgin Hotel under development at 1227 Broadway, located between West 29th and 30th streets in NoMad. Progress on the project can be seen thanks to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums. The latest building permits indicate the tower will encompass 412,611 square feet and rise 510 feet to its rooftop.
Retail and restaurant space will be located across the ground through third floor, as well as the first below-grade floor. The hotel will spread across the fourth through 35th floors. A second restaurant will be on the 37th and 38th floors.
