The Battery Maritime Building, a 1909 historic ferry terminal at the southern tip of Manhattan, was once the crown jewel of the New York City waterfront. After years of neglect, the structure was at risk of being lost forever. As lead architect, our team performed the adaptive reuse redevelopment project, crafting an elegantly modern and historically sensitive conversion into a multi-use event and hospitality venue. Today the 162,000-square-foot facility is fully reactivated. The ground floor still provides ferry operations, a porte-cochere driveway, and two gracious new lobbies with a ceremonial grand stair. The civic second floor is fully rehabilitated as an events venue centered about the dramatically restored Great Hall. The third and fourth floors were completely rebuilt as a boutique hotel. Finally, a fifth-floor modern glass addition houses a membership club with a jazz lounge, bars, and a restaurant with sweeping views of the upper Hudson Bay. This project saved an important New York City landmark and National Register Building for the foreseeable future, completing the full preservation, rehabilitation, and reconstruction, while revitalizing the waterfront.
