Built in 1881-1883, 5 Beekman was the first high-rise building in New York City. Now it is being converted, together with an adjacent site on Nassau Street, into a luxury hotel consisting of 285 guestrooms and 85 residences. The project totals approximately 340,000 sq. ft. and includes a 40+ story tower. There will be two restaurants on the ground floor (4,500 sq. ft.), a cellar bar (2,200 sq. ft.), rooftop terrace and retail (3,200 sq. ft.). The hotel will occupy the existing 160,000 sq. ft. The project is intended to serve as a catalyst in the transformation of the Fulton Nassau Historic District. Lilker's engineering services include full MEP/FP, technology infrastructure and sustainable design.
Lilker EMO performed whole building energy modeling, comprehensive energy analysis, and assessment of building systems and configurations for the design and construction of the Beekman Avenue apartment and hotel building.
