NYR. Facade, the innovative facade company, which just announced the opening of their new Bahrain office for end of 2016, is one month away from finalizing the spectacular World Trade Center Marriott Project at 133 Greenwich Street in New York, in September 2016.

The WTC Marriott was designed from the creative vision of Danny Forster with Peter Poon as Architect of record. The location, in the middle of the financial district, and facing the Freedom Tower provides astounding views of the 9/11 Memorial and beyond for guests of the hotel and visitors of the rooftop lounge.

The slender, streamlined 31-story tower which cantilevers eight feet over the adjacent 5-story building features quality façade elements, which provides a pleasing visual presence in the downtown financial district as well as a comfortable environment for guests staying within the hotel.

The build encompasses a fully glazed slim window wall system and high efficiency mullions-Transom façade which can withstand high wind pressure, in addition to high performance glass, allowing minimal energy loss and noise emittance.

NYR. Facade was selected due to the company’s extensive expertise, knowledge of the latest façade technology, and proven experience with high-quality projects.

This experience brought life to the project and made the designers vision a reality by starting with NYR. Facade's unique Design Assist program.

Since the façade of a building is undoubtedly one of the most complex parts of the building, not only defining its visual character, but also has ensured insulation performances and protection from the elements for the comfort of its users. The NYR. team of professionals have utilised the latest equipment and applied state of the art project management and industrial manufacturing methods to achieve the designers vision and meet the client’s stringent project requirements.
