28 Feb Times Square’s New Addition
Structure March 1, 2018
20 Times Square, or 701 Seventh Avenue, is located on the northeast corner where 47th Street and Seventh Avenue intersect in New York City. When finished, 20 Times Square will host a variety of functions, including nearly 75,000 square feet of premium retail space and 30,000 square feet of multi-function entertainment spaces, with a premier nightclub and a 7,000 square foot rooftop terrace that overlooks the heart of Times Square. Nestled between the retail space and rooftop is a 150,000 square foot high-end hotel with 452 guest rooms (to be branded as a Marriott Edition, the collaboration between Ian Schrager and Marriott Hotels) and an 18,000 square foot hi-definition LED sign, rising 120 feet above the bustling streets below and wrapping around both the 47th Street and Seventh Avenue facades.
In its finished state, the structure will encompass 378,000 square feet of floor space, rise 550 feet above the street, and have used 2,000 tons of Structural Steel and 21,400 cubic yards of reinforced cast-in-place concrete.
