Location: New York, NY

Client: Hyatt Hotels Corporation 

Architect: Alayo Architects 

Description: Conversion of an existing 215,000 sf commercial office building into a luxury boutique hotel featuring 144 guest rooms, 47 suites, a health club, private dining and event studio space, two restaurants, and a bar. The project involved a major layout and structural transformation. The original L-shaped building was divided into two towers by demolishing the building core to create a new interior courtyard attaching the two buildings. A vertical addition of five floors added extended stay guest rooms with open floor plans and floor-to-ceiling windows.
