Two from one: Lilker Engineers help transform famed Park Central Hotel and spin off luxurious WestHouse Hotel Exterior view of Park Central Hotel, Seventh Avenue at 55th Street NEW YORK, MAY 20, 2014 —The historic 25-story Park Central Hotel New York, 870 Seventh Ave. between 55th and 56th streets, has seen plenty of renovations in its 86 years but none as inventive as the latest by La Salle Hotel Properties, a real estate investment trust that purchased the property in 2012. La Salle’s multimillion dollar vision successfully transformed the tired, 934-room hotel in the heart of the midtown into two unique modern properties with separate entrances and lobby areas. The stylishly renovated Park Central Hotel is a 761-room hotel and conference center with an authentic New York ambience and large hotel amenities, while the elite WestHouse Hotel, with its entrance at 201 W. 55th St., is an elegant boutique hotel with the sophisticated vibe of an urbane townhouse. The WestHouse was recently named one of six Small Luxury Hotels of the World. Lilker Associates Consulting Engineers were part of the Park Central team from the onset, working with the owners, JBS Project Management, architect and designer Jeffrey Beers International, architect of record Kevin Brown with MLG Architects, and construction manager Turner Construction. Lilker provided mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protection design services for the renovation and upgrades of all guest rooms, relocation of the kitchen, and creation of two lobbies from Park Central’s original space. The project was completed in less than two years while the Park Central Hotel remained in full operation.
