Gene Kaufman Architect (GKA) has broken ground on a new Broadway theater-themed hotel, the lead project for a new boutique hotel brand.
The 211-guestroom, 27-floor hotel is located in Hell’s Kitchen near Times Square, close to more than a dozen theaters. The Rockwell Group is handling the hotel’s interior design, with concepts still under development.
Hotel amenities will include a 27th-floor rooftop bar, a lounge and terrace on the second floor, a rear garden on the first floor, and a bar and lounge located at cellar level.
GKA was established nearly 30 years ago, helmed by principal Gene Kaufman. In 2011, GKA joined forces with Gwathmey Siegel + Associates, the architecture practice of modernists Charles Gwathmey, who died in 2009, and Robert Siegel. The resulting firm is the Gwathmey Siegel Kaufman & Associates Architects (GSKA).
