The concept and design for this mixed-use/hotel residential project grew out of an original proposal by Lee Harris Pomeroy Architects to the Battery Park City Authority and a subsequent response to their RFP by our office and the Trump Organization.  This extraordinary site at the southern tip of Manhattan offered a dramatic view of the New York Harbor and the Statue of Liberty.

The building was designed to take advantage of its setting, its relationship to the adjacent Wagner Park, and an axial focus on the Statue of Liberty beyond.

The 500,000 square-foot, 38-story building is divided into two distinct elements:  a base sustaining 360 hotel rooms and suites and a tower with 74 exclusive residences.

The hotel base and residential tower are linked by a cyclindrical glass structure (hinge), and an adjacent framed view of the Statue of Liberty.

Other amenities planned include luxury dining, ballroom and meeting rooms; health spa, retail and a Visitors’ Center for the City of New York. The transition between hotel and residential areas also creates a spectacular elevated garden, recreation area and open view over the parks and water beyond.
