Silver Glass Curtainwall to Shine on New Trump® HotelJanuary 27th, 2010 | Category: Featured News
Designed by Handel Architects, Trump SoHo™ New York is the Trump® Hotel Collection’s first hotel in Downtown New York, and is set to open its doors early this year. The dramatic, 46-story, 391-room tower is clad in a silver glass curtainwall.
Architects describe the tower saying, “As a 24-hour building type, hotels have the unique ability to activate the streetscape as well as distinguish the skyline. The intent of the building design is to express this internal, dynamic life and its relationship to its urban surroundings by creating a singular material expression revealing the public theater of the hotel public spaces through clear glass while concealing the more private functions with translucent glass. The banquet level will be clad in glass with a metal-mesh interlayer and colored glass accents, both revealing and concealing the ever-changing life of its interior. Above the podium, the tower reaches skyward 450 feet. Within the body of the tower, select vistas from the hotel suites are ‘captured’ from urban-scaled windows projecting out from the face of the tower.”
“Like all of the properties in the Trump Hotel Collection, Trump SoHo New York will make a bold statement – not just architecturally but with the level of service and the abundance of amenities,” says Jim Petrus, chief operating officer, Trump Hotel Collection. “Trump SoHo New York will be the only Downtown hotel delivering this level of luxury.
