A new building, reaching 340 feet tall, with 33 floors. The hotel includes 274 guestrooms in addition to a meeting room, fitness center, bar and restaurant.

Overall the LCRE Development site is very tight, approximately 6,200 square feet, and is built on a landfill next to the East River. We value engineered or increased the diameter of the piles from 9 5/8″ to 13 3/8″ to reduce the number of piles from 179 to 88. The length of the piles varied from 85′ to 150′ per site conditions and bedrock location.
