Construction is complete on 50 Trinity Place, a 28-story Hotel Indigo in the Financial District. Designed by Peter Poon Architects and developed by FIT Investment Corporation, the 311-foot-tall structure yields 77,310 square feet and 173 guest rooms. Cauldwell Wingate was the general contractor for the Lower Manhattan project, which is located at the southwest corner of Trinity Place and Rector Street, diagonally across from Trinity Church.
Work has wrapped up on the podium and ground floor since our last update in August, all of the sidewalk scaffolding and construction barriers have been removed, and the hotel has opened its doors to guests. The property was initially reported to be an Aloft Hotel, but recent photos show Hotel Indigo branding above the main entrance.
The main tower is clad in light gray paneling with horizontal bands marking the position of each floor plate on the narrow elevation facing Trinity Place. The building’s materials and color scheme blend well with its adjacent residential neighbor at 77 Greenwich Street.
The Hotel Indigo is located within walking distance of a host of New York City highlights including the World Trade Center complex, Liberty Park, and the Westfield mall in the Oculus to the north; the southern stretch of Broadway and Wall Street to the east; the Hudson River esplanade along Battery Park City to the west; and nearby ferries to the Statue of Liberty, Governors Island, and Staten Island.
The Rector Street subway station is located directly in front of the property, providing convenient access to the R and W trains. Also nearby are the 4 and 5 trains at the Wall Street station along Broadway, the 1 train at the Rector Street station to the west, and PATH trains to New Jersey at the World Trade Center complex.
