New York New Design
VOA NY exhibits a new convention hotel proposal for Hudson Yards

by Brian J. McFarland, AIA
February 18, 2016

On February 11th, members of the VOA team who contributed to the 451 Tenth Avenue proposal (Haley Gutierrez, Caroline Karlsen, Mavis Tang, and Jacob Ross) attended the opening
of “New York New Design,” the annual exhibit of new designs by member firms of AIA New York at the Center for Architecture. With 185 projects submitted by over 100 firms, the “New York
New Design” exhibition presents works of all scales and types. VOA developed the 451 Tenth Avenue design proposal with Highgate Hotels for a site in Hudson Yards. Featuring over 150,000 SF
of functional space connected by a five-story atrium, 1,000 hotel keys, and 200,000 SF of luxury condominiums, the project would have been
the first new convention hotel in NY since the Marriott Marquis opened in 1985.

NEW YORK heals.

“Office buildings are our factories – whether for tech, creative or traditional industries we must continue to grow our modern factories to create new jobs,” said United States Senator Chuck Schumer.
