HOTEL OPTIMIZATION PART 2 | SEPTEMBER 10 & 24, 2020

Join us for Optimization Part 2 – a FREE virtual event – as we bring together top players in the industry to discuss alternative uses when occupancy is down, ways to boost F&B revenue, how to help your staff adjust to new challenges and more, in a series of panels focused on how you can regain profitability during this crisis.


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.
