In March 2012, GFI Development Company and GB Lodging acquired the iconic Five Beekman Street building in Manhattan’s Financial District. Five Beekman Street, otherwise known as Temple Court, is a 165,000 square foot beautiful historic landmark built around a nine-story central atrium, surrounded by Victorian iron railings on every floor. Originally constructed to house law firms, Five Beekman Street was built in 1882-1883 and was one of the first high-rise buildings in New York.
GFI Development Company and GB Lodging, LLC are converting this unique historic structure, together with an adjacent site on Nassau Street, into a luxury hotel consisting of approximately 287 rooms and over 68 residences operated by Thompson Hotels. The project will total approximately 340,000 square feet, including a 40-story tower, and will continue to redefine downtown Manhattan near the Freedom Tower.
