Constructoporn Destructoporn: Sam Chang Edition

New, 1 comment

It's no surprise that McHotel developer Sam Chang and his go-to architect Gene Kaufman are up to something funky just south of Union Square on Fourth Avenue, but you know, we kind of forgot that the 11-story building-to-be is not only going on top of the existing two-story structure, but is actually being inserted into it. The work has now picked up steam, and sure enough, just the outer wall of the old building remains. Say what you will about McSam Hotel Group projects?and we say a lot!?but this is probably the company's most restrained Manhattan project to date, despite its wackiness.
