About This Project

The renovation and addition of the historic Whitney Hotel featured significant interior upgrades and created 20 additional hotel rooms. To retain the building’s historical accuracy and aesthetic, the new brick façade was carefully replicated to match the original sections. The project was logistically challenging due to the heavily restricted jobsite and high traffic and pedestrian volume in the area.
