Foundation work starts on Moxy hotel as plywood rendering arrives
As I mentioned last week, the city has approved permits for the construction of the 13-story hotel coming to 11th Street between Third Avenue and Fourth Avenue.
The foundation work is underway....
... and a look at the hotel for Marriott's Moxy brand is now on the plywood...
That lines up with the only rendering that I've seen in circulation...

Work permits on file with the city show that the hotel will be 78,361 square feet — about 250 square feet per room. In addition, the permits show a lounge in the hotel's basement along with an "eating and drinking establishment with accessory terrace." The application also shows a lounge and another eating and drinking establishment on the first floor/lobby (not sure if these are connected) ... as well as a "grab n go" food and drink space. There's also another bar-restaurant planned for the top floor.
The Moxy website shows that the 11th Street hotel is expected to open in late 2018. All the background is at the links below...
