Crown Building at 730 Fifth Avenue for OKO Group

A highly visible project located on one of the busiest intersections in the city will bring the first Aman Hotel to New York and introduce the very first Aman private urban residences.

Historic building converted into a hotel and private residences of unparalleled luxury

Gilbane has been engaged by OKO Group to complete a renovation and vertical expansion within the Warren & Wetmore Crown Building. Located at the busy intersection of 57th Street and Fifth Avenue, the landmarked building is neighbored by Trump Tower and the Plaza Hotel. Aman Hotels and Resorts is a global hotel brand, known for its unmatched level of luxury and unique settings.

Set to open in 2020, the building will be transformed into 83 rooms and suites, as well as 20 of Aman’s first urban private residences. Future guests and residents will be spoiled by views of Central Park, as well as numerous building amenities. This high-end project includes a three-story day spa, indoor pool with an outdoor space, wraparound terrace, restaurants and bars. The hotel rooms span 750 square feet each and are complete with deluxe finishes and individual fireplaces. The private residences on the top floors include unique and opulent apartments, as well as one five-story penthouse that boasts private indoor and outdoor pools, as well as expansive views of Manhattan.

Gilbane will utilize our extensive residential experience as well as innovative high-end prefabrication techniques to transform this historic Beaux-Arts Crown Building into the first Aman Hotel and Residence in New York.
