The 31-story building modeled and rendered above is the 1 Hotel & Residences, the new building along Bryant Park coming at you from former Starwood Hotels CEO Barry Sternlicht. The handsome reveal comes via Andrew Calvo's Passions of a Zealot blog, which has more details. The project was known as The View at Brant Park in a previous life, and the LEED-desiring building was designed by architect Morris Adjmi. The residences will take up floors 19-31 (the penthouse floor is all glass...so hot) and an adjoining five-story building will contain meeting rooms, a spa, gym and a restaurant from BR Guest mangenius Steve Hanson?not surprising given recent dealings. Note the proximity to the gold-trimmed Bryant Park Hotel. Is 40th Street big enough for the both of them?
