W New York Downtown that located in New York, United States, was designed by Gwathmey Siegel & Associates Architects. As the trials and tribulations at the former WTC site continue to unfold, there is good news nearby. The W New York Downtown Hotel and Residences, a 57-storey tower rising at the southernmost edge of the World Trade Center Memorial Site, will complete later this year. Designed by Gwathmey Siegel & Associates Architects with GRAFT providing the interior design, the project is the first luxury hotel and residential tower to be built in Lower Manhattan and the first new project not a part of the WTC complex to begin construction since 9/11.
Rising from a four storey limestone base that will contain a restaurant, lounge, conference center, and fitness center, the glass clad tower will house 217 hotel rooms and 222 residences with commanding views of the memorial site, the water and the city beyond.
