Construction is moving along quickly at the future hotel, in and on top of the historic Battery Maritime Building. The Beaux Arts structure, with landmark status, was originally built to ferry passengers to Brooklyn during the early 1900's. Planned and taking shape is a large glass addition with will hold 140 "boutique" hotel rooms, a rooftop bar and restaurant, as well as a "grand hall" on the 2nd floor of the existing structure. The Dermot company has assigned the fragile $150 Million task to Rodgers Architects. An onsite construction work quotes "a year and a half or so" to completion. He adds "it's spectacular."
