New 43 story, 399 key select service Doubletree Hotel in the landmarked Stone Street Historic District in Lower Manhattan’s Financial District. Recognized as New York City’s first paved street, Stone Street was first developed by Dutch colonists in the 1600’s. Once ravaged by the Great Fire of 1835, this vibrant area received landmark status in 1996. Dotted with upscale restaurants and shops, this historic area has once again become a popular destination for tourists, financiers, and native New Yorkers alike.

Special Interest

Complicated site logistics due to the narrow, highly trafficked mid-block site location further challenged this project with a footprint of 3,700 SF rising 43 stories.

Due to extensive existing underground utilities the tower crane was cantilevered from the building.

CNY performed the installation of 4 Con Edison transformers vaults and 1 bus compartment within the property.

Also of note, this project requires construction coordination with the New York City Lower Manhattan Construction Command Center as mandated in 2004 by the Governor of New York and the Mayor of New York City’s joint executive Orders.
