A 100 HP boiler supplies steam to the hotel laundry and associated equipment. A single cooling tower provides condenser water to multiple ice machines located through out the hotel and kitchen areas. Independent air handling units serve the public areas. All major HVAC equipment is connected to the building’s energy management system. The residential units are served by a closed loop hydronic heat pump system with a penthouse pumping system consisting of (6) cooling towers, plate heat exchangers, (4) 125 HP gas fired boilers and zoned pumping system.
Hotel guest rooms and condominiums feature luxurious plumbing fixtures with polished brass trim. Condominiums include whirlpool baths with innovative enhancements.
