Caspi Development topped out 456 Greenwich St. in Tribeca, the future home of the 96-key Hotel Barrière Le Fouquet’s New York. It’s the first hotel in the U.S. under the Barrière brand.
“The topping out of 456 Greenwich Street represents a culmination of six years of tireless work by all involved, and it is our aspiration that the property will serve as a beacon of hope to the future of the city,” said Joshua Caspi, principal of Caspi Development.
The topping out was marked by a socially distant event hosted by Caspi Development and Groupe Barrière to express gratitude for the project team including AECOM Tishman, construction manager; Stephen B. Jacobs Group, architect; Martin Brudnizki Design Studio, interior design; Cameron Engineering; and Lehrer Cumming, owner advisor.
Also recognized for their contributions to the development were Hana Financial Investment, DPW Holdings, APW, Ponte Equities, and Barone Management.
