The Beekman Hotel and Residences won the 2017 “Excellence in Hotel Development” award from the Urban Land Institute New York.
Built in 1881-1883, the Beekman stood vacant for nearly 20 years overlooking New York City Hall. GFI Development Company turned the Beekman into a Thompson hotel while building a new, 51-story residential tower next door — for a total of 287 hotel rooms and 67 luxury condos.
The first floor space at the Beekman is home to Tom Colicchio’s critically-acclaimed restaurant Fowler & Wells, as well as Augustine by famed New York restauranteur Keith McNally.
“As one of New York’s first high-rises, the building transformed Lower Manhattan more than a century ago, and — just months after opening — we’re already seeing The Beekman Hotel and Residences positively affecting the fabric of the city,” said Steven Hurwitz, president of GFI Development Company.
