Initially touted to open in April this year, the William Vale hotel on 111 North 12th Street is now due to open on July 11. Climbing 21 stories, the $130 million hotel has already topped out at 250-feet. Designed by Albo Leberis, the hotel rests on a duo of pylons sitting on two low-rise retail-based platforms that greet the streetscape.

Covering 320,000 square feet, five floors (starting at the fifth) will accommodate offices, meanwhile the scheme will hold 183 hotel rooms and spare 40,000 square feet for commercial space.

On the first floor roof there’ll be a 15,000 square foot public park courtesy of Gunn Landscape Architecture that will offer views over the area and onto Manhattan. Meanwhile, other amenities include a roof located on the third floor.

“In addition to low-maintenance native plantings and an urban farm, Gunn plans to create arbor structures from living willow, weaving them into sculptural shapes that will both block the wind and beautify the rooftop in a unique way,” the firm said.

Further square footage has been set aside to cater for event spaces, including a ballroom that will be able to accommodate 240 guests for business affairs and 315 guests for social events.
