Purchased for $12.5 million in 2012, plans to level the four-story garage and Blazing Saddles shop at 433 Mason Street, adjacent to the Donatello Hotel, have been drawn. And as proposed, a new 211-room hotel will rise up to 13 stories on the site, which is across the street from Ruby Skye and a block away from Union Square.
The L-shaped parcel wraps around the corner seven-story building at 425 Mason, which itself is proposed to be converted into a 77-room hotel and bar.
While the Mason street façade of the new hotel, which is being designed by Stanton Architecture, would only reach a height of 80 feet, its western wing would be 130 feet along Derby Street and in the middle of the block.
And while the project as proposed includes a ground level retail space along Mason, it doesn’t include any parking for the hotel or others.
