Ismael Leyva to design Morris Moinian’s new midtown hotel


New York City architectural firm, Ismael Leyva Architects, has been selected to design a new midtown hotel at 1150 Avenue of the Americas in Manhattan.

The new hotel has yet to be named. Developed by the Fortuna Realty Group, the new hotel will ascend as a 40-story tower, totaling upwards of 162,000 s/f, with approximately 300 keys including Penthouse and lower-tower suites with rear terraces.

Future guests will have access to a selection of luxurious hotel amenities, ranging from a 360-degree view rooftop bar with garden terraces in the front and rear, a fitness center, spa and saunas.

The ground-level will feature a 25 ft. ceiling with a lounge, bar, marquee restaurant as well as a lower level restaurant with outdoor seating.

In addition, there will be a spacious 2nd Floor Ballroom complete with a bar and pre-function services.

“This new addition to midtown hospitality will be a 4.5 star hospitality property between 44th & 45th streets on the Avenue of the Americas. The hotel design will be elegant with sophisticated style in conjunction with contemporary luxury,” said Ismael Leyva, president of Ismael Leyva Architects.

“Guests will enjoy the spectacular views of Manhattan in this culturally, rich district of midtown.”

Located at 1150 Avenue of the Americas and 44th Street, the new hotel is situated in the midst of the bustling Broadway theatre district just steps away from Times Square, Rockefeller Center, The Museum of Modern Art, Grand Central Station, Saint Patrick’s Cathedral, New York “Main” Public Library, Bryant Park and Fifth Avenue shopping.
