610 Lexington Avenue is getting a condo-hotel by SLCE Architects, which has released shiny renderings of the project.
The Midtown East building will rise 712 feet and reach 65 stories on the corner of 53rd Street, according to filings this week with the Department of Buildings. The apartments will start on the 52nd floor and go up to the 63rd floor, with two condos per level, Curbed reported.
The hotel will include a lounge, bar, restaurant, meeting rooms, spa and swimming pool, according to the updated filings. The hotel operator has yet to be announced.
Developer Aby Rosen had originally planned a Shangri-La hotel and luxury condos tower by Norman Foster, which fell through during the financial crisis. Rosen and Michael Fuchs recapitalized the stalled development site by getting a new group of funders to take over a $66 million loan from ING, The New York Post reported.
