Work appears to be stalled on H Hotel W39, a 447-foot-tall project from Peter F. Poon Architectsat58 West 39th Streetin Midtown. Developed byWei Hong Hu of H Hotel LLC, the 29-story building is located between Fifth and Sixth Avenue just south of Bryant Park.

Recent photos from Tectonic show the reinforced concrete superstructure has risen just one story since YIMBYs lastupdatein late January. The formwork and rebar for the columns and floor slabs currently hover around the third floor and are still within the confines of the two abutting structures.

58 West 39th Street will yield 56,000 square feet with 41,500 square feet of commercial space, 65 hotel rooms, meeting rooms, a fitness center, and a hotel lobby along West 39th Street. The rendering depicts a very unconventional massing with a dramatic cantilever on its eastern profile. The glass-clad structure features rounded corners throughout and culminates in a dome-like parapet. The northern elevation, not seen in the rendering, will likely be a flat wall of glass that faces Bryant Park, and the eastern profile appears to feature an outdoor terrace.

The closest subways are the B, D, F, M, and 7 trains at the 42nd Street-Bryant Park station. Times Square is a short walk from the hotel, while the Port Authority Bus Terminal is only two avenues away on Eighth Avenue.

Its unclear when progress will pick up or when 58 West 39th Street will be completed. YIMBY spotted a target of winter 2020, as noted on the construction fence, though sometime in 2021 is more likely.
