The Crown Building (730 Fifth Avenue)

Location:New York, NY
Client:OKO Group

The existing 26-story office building built in 1921 is undergoing a significant restoration, converting the neoclassical Beaux-Arts building into 83 hotel guest suites and 20 luxury condos, including a five-story penthouse. The tower features an octagonal pyramid roof and a tall chimney, both with gilded details. The restoration includes:

  • Window replacement
  • Storefront replacement at the new entrance lobby
  • Façade repair (masonry restoration)
  • New sky terrace and new amenity terraces at Floors 10, 14 and 16. The new amenity terrace on Floor 10 will be part of the Hotel, and will include a new opening, doors, canopy and glazing at the existing walls as well as new glass railings. The new amenity terraces at Floors 14 and 16 are planned to have private pools for their respective residential units. Our scope of work includes review and detailing of all waterproofing systems for the new terraces (pools, landscaping, etc.)
  • Metal cladding at the top of the inclined roof and chimney

The new construction portion of the Project is a vertical expansion to be added above the existing annex building. With our expansive renovation and expansion portfolio, Vidaris will use its expertise to help transform this famed commercial office and retail building into a luxury hotel and residences icon of New York City.
