Gwathmey Siegel & Associates displays work on W Hoboken

Gwathmey Siegel & Associates Architects has officially completed design of the W Hoboken, a 26-story hotel and residential tower. The property opened April 2009.

It’s a big project: 225 hotel rooms, 40 residences, underground parking garage, and event spaces, all of them in a metal-and-glass clad tower on the banks of the Hudson River with scenic views of the Manhattan skyline opposite. The public functions (full-service restaurant, themed bar, lobby, lounge, spa and more) are located within the tower’s two-story masonry base; above that rises the wedge-shaped tower that houses the private rooms, each one of them designed to the standard of the W brand. Unusually for a hotel of this size, both exterior and interior--save for the restaurant--were designed entirely by Gwathmey Siegel.

Gwathmey Siegel & Associates Architects has long been one of the most important firms doing large-scale multi-unit housing worldwide. With the W Hoboken Hotel & Residences, founding principal Robert Siegel is carrying forward the tradition of excellence and innovation that he and his late partner Charles Gwathmey began over forty ago years ago.
