We upgraded the mechanical, electrical, plumbing, sprinkler, and fire alarm systems, including emergency lighting, smoke exhaust system, and ADA compliance to allow short term stays. Overall occupancy was upgraded from R-2 to R-1. They also designed a new laundry facility on the second floor, supporting 2 washers, 2 dryers, 1 sink, and a floor drain.
With unparalleled city views, 134 luxurious rooms, and a prime location, AKA Central Park is a lavish home away from home. Designed to confer the benefits enjoyed by a full time resident, AKA Central Park guests can choose from spacious studios, 1 & 2 bedroom apartments (most equipped with full kitchens), and incredible penthouses with private wrap-around terraces, perfectly blending the style and hospitality of an intimate hotel with the space and comfort of a private residence. Just one block away from Central Park, and within a stone’s throw of some of some of the legendary shopping that New York City has to offer, a guest is guaranteed an unforgettable experience during their stay.
