Weltmann Lighting helped convert the Battery Park City Embassy Suites hotel into an upscale Conrad Hotel. During the pre-construction phase Weltmann worked with ownership and the design team and provided value-engineering to work within the project budget.
Weltmann furnished energy efficient and LED lighting and controls for 463 rooms, 24-hour health and fitness center, 30,000 square foot meeting and event space, a rooftop bar, restaurants and a glamorous ballroom.
The lighting through the atrium and hotel, designed by New York-based Herve Descotte’s L’Observatoire International, is ever-changing and can spread light in seven colors. The 16-story atrium lobby boasts a collection of contemporary art including works, like the mural by Sol LeWitt and a sculptural symphony of cable-like strings by Monica Ponce De Leon called “Veils.” All of the art is beautifully lit with color changing LED which brings the place to life.
Weltmann furnished the hotel with LED lighting for more than 60% of all the lighting in order to gain LEED® "Gold" for New Construction Certification. This is the first LEED Gold New Construction major renovation project certified under the latest rating system in New York.

For more than 130 years St. Patrick’s Cathedral has graced New York City. Weltmann Lighting is pleased to be a part of this exciting and historic project. The $177 million plan for the full restoration of St. Patrick’s Cathedral includes work on the exterior and interior of the Cathedral. Weltmann is responsible to coordinate, implement and monitor the restoration of all of the existing chandeliers and wall sconces. Weltmann has extensive background in managing the process and ensuring the historic fixtures are safely removed from the site, restored and then installed back in their existing location. In addition, Weltmann is furnishing new fixtures inside the cathedral and custom LED lighting to illuminate the ornately carved newly restored bronze front doors.
The project also includes restorative work on the entire Cathedral campus, including the Cardinal’s House and Rectory and the completion of a new garden. The garden will be a green space open to public and will serve as a tranquil place for reflection and meditation at St. Patrick’s.
Gerner Kronick + Valcarcal is the architect and GFI Capital/GB Lodging are the developers. The new tower will eventually total 47 floors and 700 feet, with two parapets included to echo the adjacent Temple Court Building, which is being converted into a hotel. The tower has been dubbed ‘The Beekman’ and will have 68 condominiums in total, while the hotel portion of the project will have 287 rooms.
