This project transforms an 11 story 5th Avenue office building into a hotel and residences in a prime Manhattan location. Preserving the existing early 20th century masonry façade and structure, the interior will be refurbished with modern interiors, new elevators and state of the art energy conserving mechanical systems.


The existing top floor will be demolished and rebuilt as penthouse residences, encased in a undulating golden curtain wall that provides a beacon of light on Fifth avenue, lighting the roof top garden; with it’s bar, restaurant and pool.  After dark the reflected light from the plants and the transfused light of the pool will spill out onto the avenue. At the street level pedestrians are entertained by glimpses into the lower level restaurant and bar.


Total floor area will be 150,000 sf of hotel suites, residential hotel suites, restaurants, pool and support areas.
