The iconic Grand Hyatt New York in Midtown Manhattan recently debuted a multimillion dollar renovation of its conference level, including 12,000 square feet of meeting space and 18 breakout rooms. Designed by New York City-based interior design and architecture firm Nemaworkshop, the new design reflects the energy of the adjacent Grand Central Terminal and the New York City skyline.
The Robey, a 1929 art deco building located on the corner of Damen Avenue and North Avenue, is set for a makeover. The Robey is hard to miss, the 69-room hotel has a café, second-floor lounge, guest-only rooftop lounge, and in 2017, a rooftop pool. Grupo Habita will headline the project, with the hopes of modernizing the hotel without losing its character.
Its prism-like shape makes The Robey a unique building on the Wicker Park and Bucktown border. Built out of glass, wood, concrete and chrome, it earned the nickname Coyote Building due to its likening of a howling animal.
