Restoration of NYC Landmark Hotel Requires Diplomacy and Close Cooperation
Property: The Peninsula Hotel Location: 700 Fifth Avenue, Manhattan, New York, NY
To do extensive restoration while access to this historic New York City landmark building in Manhattan was limited due to the proximity of surrounding structures and business needs. Also, the hotel management did not want their guest’s overnight stay experience, or any hotel functions to be negatively affected by any restoration work. In addition, the adjacent Fifth Avenue luxury retail shops did not want their customers to be inconvenienced.
To accommodate the tight rigging space, a creative rigging plan was implemented incorporating installation of beams inside the building, and extending through the windows. We worked closely with the landmarks commission as they approved all materials and processes in this project. We worked around the hotel’s schedule, so as to not impair the experience of the guests or hotel functions. The shopkeepers on Fifth Avenue were not affected due to effective and diplomatic project management – meeting with store managers daily.
