Project DescriptionFROM THE ARCHITECTS:
Sharing a city block with the Woolworth Building, Cass Gilbert's iconic 1913 skyscraper, 30 Park Place will combine a 189-key five-star Four Seasons hotel with 157 top-end condominium apartments in a slender 82-story tower that will become an important landmark among the constellation of towers in Manhattan's Downtown. The hotel entrance on Barclay Street will lead visitors into four floors of lobbies, lounges, restaurants, ballrooms, meeting facilities, and a spa and fitness center. The public rooms of the hotel will face a through-block garden framed by a lower annex building that will conceal building services and access to below-grade parking. A separate entrance and lobby on Park Place will serve the residences. Amenities for the apartments will be located on the 38th floor; the function rooms and fitness center will open to exterior loggias. The limestone and precast concrete shaft of the tower will rise to a dramatic skyline profile of full-floor penthouses and setback terraces.
