Peter Poon designs Luma Hotel Times Square

The hotel’s façade will have a glass curtain between two classic pre-war buildings.

The Luma Hotel Times Square is scheduled to open in Manhattan this October. Designed by locally-based architect Peter Poon, the hotel’s façade will have a glass curtain between two classic pre-war buildings.

The property’s 130 guestrooms will have 7-foot floor-to-ceiling windows to allow in natural light and views of the city. The guestrooms will also have walk-in showers.

With the opening of the Luma Hotel Times Square, an onsite chef-driven restaurant will also debut in the Bryant Park neighborhood. This bar and café will have a side-street-style space.
