New York City-based architecture and design firm Marin Architects is leading design efforts as Architect of Record and Designer for the Xadia Hotel.
Located at 57 West 39th Street, the 42-story tower, visible from the bustling lawn of Bryant Park, will make a tasteful impression on the city skyline through a unique, cantilever façade and eye-catching interior lighting design. Accentuated by a panoramic view of the city, the Xadia Hotel will feature 173 luxury guest rooms, a rooftop bar and restaurant, a plaza, and an arcade.
Defined by its striking exterior, The Xadia Hotel is easily identifiable by an illuminated crown structure sitting atop the tower, brightening the horizon. The crown personifies modest refinement through architecture, a testament to the beauty found in clean lines and uncluttered form, while representing a departure from excessive ornamentation, focusing instead on the power of understatement. Conceived as a symbol of New York’s enduring spirit, the design reflects the city’s resilience, determination, and unwavering commitment to progress, embracing diversity through universal appeal and establishing the building as an embodiment of the city’s character and aspirations.
“When we were approached to design the Xadia Hotel, we saw it as an exciting opportunity to combine our expertise in hospitality design with our firm’s knowledge of New York City’s zoning laws,” said Walter Marin, Founder and Senior Principal at Marin Architects. “We are proud to be bringing a new design destination to the city and to be an important part of this era of re-imagination in Midtown.”
The design for The Xadia Hotel utilises a high-impact design paired with clever navigation of New York City’s zoning laws. Efficiency is at the forefront, converting smaller units into spacious, optimised environments. A 25-foot cantilever was added over the adjacent property, substantially increasing the building’s square footage and augmenting an additional 68 units. To make this a reality, The Zoning Lab, Marin Architects’ in-house service designed to navigate the complexities of zoning regulations, conducted a zoning analysis, and brought forth solutions to complexities faced throughout.
Served by Marin Architects’ extensive experience in hospitality design and industry-leading knowledge of New York City zoning laws, The Xadia Hotel represents a new era of re-imagination in New York City’s iconic Midtown.
