Sounds of demolition have been coming from inside 112-120 E. 11th St. between Third Avenue and Fourth Avenue... as you know, these five former residential buildings are coming down to make way for a 13-story hotel for Marriott’s Moxy brand.
From the street it's difficult to tell just what's going on inside here... But from above...an EVG tipster shared these photos ...

...our tipster said that this "roof stripping" has been going on all week...
To date, we haven't seen any renderings for this 300-room hotel aimed toward the Millennial set. Stonehill & Taylor are the architects of record. They designed the one going up in Chelsea.
For some idea of what we might be in for here... check out the rendering for the West 28th Street location...
