Bridgeton converts button and ribbon factory into boutique hotel

US: New York-based real estate investors, Bridgeton, have converted an 1899 Renaissance Revival style building in Tribeca into an 171-room hotel.

Bridgeton collaborated with a team of specialists to design the Walker Hotel Tribeca, on 77 Walker Street.

Guests can either check in at the large, entry lobby, or at a second, more social lobby that doubles up as a lounge and cocktail bar.

Founder of Bridgeton Hospitality, Atit Jariwala, said: “The original check-in was slated for the first floor, but we moved it down half a flight of stairs to a mullioned, mahogany alcove where staff can provide guests with their full attention – and guests can get whisked up to their rooms through a private elevator”.

“The floor directly above is dedicated to the Walker Lobby – a 50-seat lounge, serving cocktails and a limited menu consisting of light, more casual fare,” Jariwala added.

Home to six distinct food and drink venues, one of the restaurants was designed by Cycle Projects using materials like stone title, marble and plaster.

A subterranean cocktail bar, by John McCormick Design, is intimate and inspired by its Victorian-era heritage.

An 11th-floor, rooftop terrace has a capacity of 160 people, and provides views of New York City and along Broadway.

There are seven categories of guest rooms spread across 10 floors, all of which are designed to have a “timeless and progressive charm with efficient footprints, high-quality finishes, and elevated details.

These categories are:

  • Walker King
  • Walker Queen
  • Walker Full
  • Petite Loft Queen
  • Walker Accessible Queen
  • Broadway Corner Queen
  • Corttland Corner King

Features include marble baths, rain showers, tobacco leather professor chains, and herringbone wood floors.
