5 Star Hotel and Residences, NY
New York, NY
Feasibility Study, 2006
This mixed-use project near Lower Manhattan’s historic South Street Seaport comprises a 50-story condominium tower and a six-floor base structure housing a five-star hotel. Creating an intimate, luxurious arrival experience, a unique porte-cochère allows guests and residents to drive through the building, removing them from street and pedestrian traffic. From the porte-cochère, the condominium lobby sits to the east and the hotel’s lobby, restaurant and bar to the west, all with 20-foot-high ceilings and façades sheathed in glass. Atop the hotel, a landscaped terrace includes a gym, a yoga studio and a lap pool perched on the building’s edge, overlooking the Brooklyn Bridge, while the tower’s rooftop features a swimming pool enclosed by a 20-foot-high glass wind screen. The condominiums’ loft-like floor plans emphasize expansive river and harbor views.
