The new US flagship Virgin Hotel reaches 478 feet above the curb, encompassing 440,000 sf over 38 stories and provides 460 rooms. The five-story podium and lower levels house conference space, hotel amenities, and 90,000 sf of retail area, with two large terraces on the third floor. This project occupies the full block between 29th and 30th Streets along Broadway in Manhattan.
GMS provided structural engineering and special inspection services. The project is adjacent to the subway lines running along Broadway, so approval of the MTA Office of Outside Services was required to obtain building permits. Completed in 2022.
