Marriott International announced on Tuesday the start of construction of the new Ritz-Carlton New York, NoMad.

The hotel, expected to open in 2021, is located in the city’s NoMad district at Broadway and 28th Street and is being built with a budget of $500 million.

“At the turn of the century, the NoMad area was home to many of the city’s most exclusive luxury hotels and served as a hub for the global elite,” said Dayssi Olarte de Kanavos, president of the Flag Luxury Group, which is developing the hotel.

The 500-foot (152-meter) high tower, designed by architect Rafael Viñoly, will have 250 guest rooms as well as 16 residences, all created by the interior design firm Yabu Pushelberg. Rooms facing north and northeast will have views of the Empire State Building while other rooms will have views of downtown Manhattan.

The Ritz-Carlton New York, NoMad will have a restaurant, a Club Lounge, a Ritz-Carlton Spa and fitness center, and a rooftop bar. In addition, the hotel will feature a large public garden as well as open terraces. For meetings and events, the hotel will have two ballrooms plus a 3,000-square-foot (278-square-meter) outdoor terrace available.

NoMad, also known as Madison Square North, is bounded by East 25 Street to the south, East 30 Street to the north, Sixth Avenue to the west, and Madison Avenue to the east.
