Here’s our first look at Tribeca Associates upcoming 26-story hotel at 143 Fulton Street in the Financial District, where demolition at the site is already underway. The 90,000- square-foot tower designed by SLCE Architects will contain 228 rooms, ground-level retail, and typical hotel amenities such as a fitness center and a bar/lounge on the third floor. Hotel suites, found on floors 5 through 25, average ten per floor. The building will also seek LEED accreditation.
The rendering of the tower is posted on the site of law firm Mona Shah & Associates, who specialize in structuring, configuring, and preparing EB-5 projects (immigrant investor visas). Tribeca Associates was also a partner in developing the Baccarat Hotel & Residences in Midtown, the conversion project Artisan Lofts in Tribeca, and the Smyth Hotel & Residences.
Images of Whyte’s Restaurant captured by Daytonian in Manhattan
Daytonian in Manhattan details the history of the soon-to-be-razed three-story building on the site of the new hotel that was the home of Whyte’s Restaurant for some 66 years. Built in 1910 as a high-end eating establishment seeking to rival Delmonico’s, the Clinton & Russell-designed, half-timber structure resembled an old English cottage or a Swiss chalet. The restaurant closed in 1971 and was progressively disfigured by successive tenants.

The project site is located directly across from the new Fulton Street Transit Hub and a short walk to City Hall and the new World Trade Center. Fulton Street is undergoing a surge of residential development with no less than four projects underway on the stretch, including Lexin Capital’s 75 Nassau Street, Carmel Partners’ 118 Fulton Street, Lightstone Group’s 128 William Street, and Brauser Group’s 56 Fulton Street.
