W Hoboken

Gwathmey Siegel & Associates Architects as Architects

The W Hoboken is a 26-story hotel and residential tower containing 225 hotel rooms, 40 hotel residences, retail, event spaces and a basement parking garage. Located on the West shore of the Hudson River in downtown Hoboken, New Jersey, the metal and glass tower establishes a counter-point to the existing mid-rise, masonry structures that characterize the Hoboken shoreline. The public functions, including a full service restaurant, themed bar, lobby lounge, spa, conference rooms, a ballroom, and back of house spaces, have been developed within a two-story masonry base. The material and massing of the base responds to municipal development guidelines, relating in scale and material to the character of the historic city of Hoboken. Rising from the base, a wedge shaped tower maximizes views eastward to Manhattan by virtue of its inflected geometry. The hotel rooms, developed to the standard of the W brand, form the 14-story mid-section of the new tower, the height of which relates to the cornice line of the adjacent properties. The north and south facades of the mid-section of the tower are characterized by abstract fluting formed by full height bay windows included within the typical hotel rooms to further enhance the view. Nine floors of hotel residences form the top of the tower, creating a cornice by virtue of the exterior balconies. Rising above the neighboring structures, the new residences offer unobstructed views north and south.
