2/15/2013 - The BAM Cultural District is getting another new tower, this time a hotel. The Post reports that at200-roomhotel will be rising at 95 Rockwell Place, not far from the 32-story apartment building planned by Two Trees. To design the hotel, developer Second Development Services tapped architect Thomas Leeser, who has created such stunners as theMuseum of the Moving Image and the 2012 London Olympic Park. The tower looks to rise about 30 stories (the Post article doesn't specify), with angular cutaway strips breaking up the facade. The building will have a basement performing space, rooftop bar, banquet hall, and a restaurant that overlooks an outside arts plaza. SDS expects to begin construction this fall and complete the building within two years.
