Lightstone announced the topping out of construction of two Moxy hotels in New York City.
Moxy Lower East Side and Moxy Williamsburg, set to open in late 2022, add to Lightstone’s growing hospitality portfolio, which includes four open Moxy hotels: Moxy Times Square, Moxy Chelsea, and Moxy East Village in New York, and Moxy South Beach in Miami.
Located at 145 Bowery Street, between Grand Street and Broome Street, Moxy Lower East Side reached its pinnacle at 18 stories.
Moxy Williamsburg, located at 353 Bedford Ave, between 4th Street and 5th Streets, reached its full height at 11 stories.
Both properties will boast design-driven bedrooms, activated public spaces, and brand-new dining and drinking concepts. Experiential programming will include live music, fashion and art pop-ups, workshops, and wellness series.
“We are excited to be expanding our New York Moxy Hotel portfolio with these two dynamic properties,” said Mitchell Hochberg, President of Lightstone. “The success of our first three Moxy’s in Manhattan underscores the demand for our trademark style of hospitality. The timing is also perfect, as New York City makes its dramatic comeback from the past year. We are proud to be part of the city’s renaissance.”
Moxy Lower East Side will feature 303 hotel rooms, with architecture by Stonehill Taylor. London-based interior designer, Michaelis Boyd, has designed the guestrooms, lobby, cocktail bar, and rooftop bar, while Rockwell Group designed the restaurant and underground lounge. Moxy Leeding Builders Group is managing construction of the project.
Located just over the Williamsburg Bridge, less than ten minutes from Manhattan, Moxy Williamsburg will feature 216 hotel rooms. Stonehill Taylor is the architect while Basile Studio s designed the interiors. The hotel will have touchless check-in, coworking spaces and two adjoining meetings studios, and a fitness center. It will feature a main-floor bar, café/restaurant, and cocktail lounge. Crowning the building will be an indoor/outdoor rooftop, with a terrace. Leeding Builders Group is managing construction of the project.
Moxy Lower East Side and Moxy Williamsburg are complemented by three additional New York properties including: the 612-room flagship Moxy Times Square property that opened in the Fall of 2017; the 350-room Moxy Chelsea that opened in February 2019; and the Moxy East Village, a 286-room hotel that opened in September 2019.
Lightstone debuted its first Moxy property outside of New York with the opening of Moxy Miami South Beach earlier this year. Earlier this month, Lightstone celebrated the topping out of the firm’s dual-branded project, Moxy Los Angeles Downtown and AC Hotel Los Angeles Downtown.
By the end of 2022, the company‘s portfolio will feature seven Moxy properties in total.
