The Ritz Carlton Downtown and The Residences at the Ritz Carlton

Overlooking New York Harbor, the Ritz Carlton enhances the civic space of its Battery Park City neighborhood with the introduction of hospitality, luxury housing and cultural amenities.

This mixed-use project takes the notion of hospitality and extends it to the public, providing community amenities such as the Skyscraper Museum at its base. The Ritz Carlton transforms the landscape of Battery Park City from a corporate corridor to an inviting neighborhood.

Todd Schliemann, Design Partner

The design responds both to its open site and the built context. The building’s expansive glazed western façade offers river views while offsetting the apparent weight of the building.

Clad in brick, the eastern façade relates to the existing buildings in both Battery Park City and historic Lower Manhattan.

The building includes hotel rooms and condominiums and provides a permanent home for the Skyscraper Museum at the ground level. A landscaped park with a restaurant and café marks the entrance to the building.
