Omnibuild has completed construction of The Hyatt Place New York Chelsea Hotel, a 45-story, 510-room hotel located at 140 West 24th Street. The 173,000-sf. Project is one of the tallest buildings in the neighborhood and one of the largest hotels to open in New York City in 2021.

The building features a thin limestone rain screen facade system that was manufactured in Italy and shipped to New York City piece by piece. Hyatt Place New York Chelsea is one of the first high-rise buildings in New York City to use GammaStone’s lightweight yet monolithic panelized rain screen stone system. “The stone façade panel system was a global effort. It was quarried and cut in Portugal and then trucked to Rome mid-pandemic to be sawed down and bonded before being shipped out of Genoa, Italy to New York,” said John Mingione, principal and COO of Omnibuild, in a release.

The hotel also includes a glass staircase that leads to the mezzanine space and a second-floor terrace bar area and a guest breakfast pantry. The second-floor terrace area features a wall opening/glass hanger door leading to the bar that features a retractable enclosure system for year-round use.

Hyatt Place Hotel was designed by Gene Kaufman Architects and developed in partnership with Magna Hospitality Group.
