Fifth Avenue Hotel at 250 Fifth Avenue

New York, New York
To create a luxury boutique hotel on New York City’s iconic Fifth Avenue, Perkins Eastman has given new life to a historic landmark building, and expanded it with a contemporary hotel tower. The Gilded Age bank and 21st century tower blend together seamlessly, honoring the past while offering an unparalleled modern guest experience.

Located in NoMad, a former bank designed in the early 1900s by the legendary McKim, Mead & White provided the ideal base for reimagining what a modern hotel could be. Leveraging our expertise in planning and hospitality design, Perkins Eastman worked with the developers and operators to analyze the opportunity and conceived of a luxury lifestyle destination celebrating the history of the building and location while creating a modern landmark for the neighborhood.

In collaboration with PBDW Architects, the Perkins Eastman team restored the historic structure’s five-story façade, and designed a connected adjacent tower suited for the landmark-protected neighborhood. With metal frame windows arranged in striking vertical sets, the tower brings renewed visual interest to 28th Street while the 23 stories—clad in precast concrete and stone bands—harmonize with the building next door, which was constructed more than a century ago.

Guests are invited into the re-adapted bank by a vaulted two-story space, which includes a signature restaurant, lounges, and hotel amenities. Spacious private suites overlooking Fifth Avenue and a grand ballroom in the historic structure allow visitors to step back in time, while enjoying modern furnishings and amenities. More than 150 guest rooms, spread throughout both buildings, provide guests with a relaxing atmosphere in the heart of New York City.
