Project Details

Location: 2 Lexington Ave., Manhattan, New York City
Owner: Ian Schrager Group
Contractor: Bovis
Architect: BB&G
Description: AMFI worked closely with BB & G and the design team from the Ian Schrager group to create a modern canopy while retaining the feel of a structure that was built in 1924. The original panels were used as a guide to direct the shape of the new bronze fascia. Nearly 100% of the details and profiles were created at AMFI. Custom light fixtures were created for ease of maintenance and installation. Even after the canopy was seriously damaged by an installation crew, AMFI was able to repair the canopy on schedule to allow the hotel to open on time.
