Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience

Join Hotel Management’s Elaine Simon for our latest roundtable—Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience. The experts on the panel will share how to inspire guest confidence that hotels are safe and clean and how to win back guest business.

Groundbreaking on the project will be roughly parallel to the start of nearby construction of the Western Hemisphere's largest Ferris wheel -- the New York Wheel -- and Empire Outlets, New York City's first outlet center.

In 2006, the NYCEDC selected Triangle Equities to develop the Lighthouse Point project through a competitive RFP process. Along with the New York Wheel, Empire Outlets, and the New Stapleton Waterfront, Lighthouse Point is a key element of NYCEDC's ongoing effort to transform the St. George waterfront into a dynamic civic hub that will drive economic growth, create thousands of jobs, support existing waterfront amenities, and provide new waterfront uses to the benefit of visitors and residents alike.
