Construction Watch: 10 Lafayette Square Gets Framed

Office workers and residential tenants have taken occupancy on the upper floors of the Tishman Building. They will soon be joined by hotel guests in the 124-room Hilton Garden Inn at the base of the building where a porte-cochere is taking shape along Lafayette Square.

The 174,400-square-foot building will feature a 124-room Hilton Garden Inn hotel, 18 market-rate apartments, and corporate offices for The Hamister Group on the top three floors. Carmina Wood Morris designed the building makeover and R & P Oak Hill is managing the construction. The project carries a $41 million price tag.


The porte-cochere and bump-out are designed as to not interfere with the Main Street re-traffic project. Valet parking for tenants and guests is provided.


The Hilton Garden Inn will occupy the building’s first fourteen floors and will open October 10th. It will complete the building makeover and bring new life to a long-dead corner of the Square. There will be a lounge and bar run by the hotel on the first floor with outdoor seating along Main Street. Additionally, there will be a full service restaurant and bar on the second floor along with lounge space.

A key component of the redevelopment at 10 Lafayette Square is the three floors of market-rate apartments on the fifteenth through seventeenth floors. Two-thirds of the apartments have been leased and tenants began moving in earlier this month.


There are six units on each of the residential floors- four one-bedroom and two, two-bedroom apartments. They have nine foot ceilings, an in-unit laundry, hand-scraped hardwood floors, stainless steel appliances, and granite countertops.


The one-bedroom units range in size from 680 to 886 sq.ft. and the two-bedroom units are 1,465 to 1,810 sq.ft. Rents range from $1,250 to $2,800 depending on unit type and floor.
