Stonehill & Taylor collaborated with Decoration Jacques Garcia on this conversion of a historic office building to a new hotel, targeted for LEED Gold Certification. The 132,000 s.f. property includes 168 oversized guestrooms and suites, each with an open, loft-like feel that includes wood floors and high ceilings. The extra-large guestroom windows provide an abundance of natural light for each room, many of which have views of the Empire State Building. The hotel also offers a destination fine dining restaurant and bar on the ground floor, with a skylight-covered inner atrium court. The Penthouse level features an event space and an outdoor rooftop garden. Located in the Madison Square North Historic District, the building is eligible for State Historic Preservation Tax Credits.
