GRAMERCY PARK HOTEL
IAN SCHRAGER COMPANY
As Vice President of Development for Ian Schrager, Richard Moon was responsible for the development and construction of the Gramercy Park Hotel and all of its venues. The 310 existing guest rooms were converted into 186 more capacious spaces; to ensure that the redesigned hotel remained compatible with the Gramercy Park historic district, the skin of the first and second floors was replaced with panoramic glazing and elegant limestone panels. A floor of guest rooms was removed to create a double-height lobby with bar and restaurant spaces, and the hotel’s top floor converted into an event space with 3,000 square feet of exterior terrace.
