According to city records, a new 41-story hotel is coming to Fulton St in FiDi, going in next to Fulton Center station. The pre-filing was made earlier this month for 140 Fulton, an empty lot. But also, fencing and signage just went up for demolition of 142 Fulton right next door, with “140 Fulton Associates LLC” as the owner for that property, so clearly it’s all related. It seems they plan to combine the two lots for the new building, which would make sense since each lot is quite narrow on its own.
The architect of record is Stonehill Taylor, which also did the new Moxy hotel directly across the street, as well as a lot of very nice hotels around the city, including the Nomad, Refinery, Ace, and TWA (at JFK).
