Update: Extell's Glassy Hyatt Time Square Soars

Extell Development's "Hyatt Times Square" is rising, and quickly. The future 53 story tower with 487 rooms was barely out of the ground last fall, but now towers over West 45th Street.The building is up to around 40 stories with more than 30 floors of glass. While this is not a masterwork like One57, it is after all Times Square, and it is a hotel - not a $6000 per square foot condo. The exterior architect is SLCE, with SPanN for the interiors. It is billed as a "4 Star" hotel with completion expected sometime in 2013.
