TWA Hotel

project at a glance

The TWA Hotel is comprised of (2) 7-story buildings joined together by Saarinen’s iconic Flight Center, restored to serve as the hotel’s lobby. Restoration efforts also included the “flight tubes” that provide passengers and hotel guests with direct access to JetBlue’s T5. Hotel features include a rooftop power plant; 6 restaurants and 8 bars; a 50,000 square foot conference center, and a 10,000 square foot observation/pool deck.
 
The project’s successful completion was the result of effective pre-planning and operational excellence. For example, a dynamic site protection plan was implemented to ensure the structural integrity of the landmarked buildings throughout construction. In addition, a dewatering program that saw the removal of 500 million gallons of water allowed the construction of foundations 25-feet below the water table of Jamaica Bay were overcome.
