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