Hersha Purchasing & Design collaborates with C3D Architecture for The Bernic

The Bernic, a new hotel located at 145 East 47th Street, is slated to open in Midtown Manhattan East this winter. The interior and exterior designs were done by Hersha Purchasing & Design and C3D Architecture.

The glass and gunmetal façade will be divided into two volumes. The base will follow street line, while the upper portion of the building will have a different feel. There will also be outdoor balcony terraces.

The 21-story boutique hotel in Manhattan will have 96 guestrooms including a luxury-level penthouse suite, virtually all of which will be outfitted with balconies. Floor-to-ceiling windows will offer views of the city’s skyline. Each guestroom will have bath amenities by Beekman 1802, an iron and ironing board, an in-room safe and in-room refreshment bar.
