The Great Hall
The newly renovated great hall is an inviting, lively concourse and cultural hub. Alluring 30-foot ceilings frame a modern, comfortable public passageway and respite, grounding the space with natural elements including green walls, trees, falling water, and a circadian lighting system. Tartinery, a premier NYC cafe and coffee bar located within the great hall, features craft coffee by Irving Farm and offers a Parisian influence to this aspirational space – a luxurious oasis featuring state-of-the-art amenities and dramatic artwork.
Abundant natural light A 32 foot tall glass facade faces New York City’s cherished landmark, St. Patrick’s Cathedral.
Sculptural art gallery Featuring renowned contemporary artist Liam Gillick to embody the history and culture of Olympic Tower.
Performance lighting An advanced circadian lighting system features a 24-hour oscillating cycle that mimics natural light — transitioning from warm amber hues at sunrise to cool, bright light during the day.
Green wall Tapestries Nourished by illumination from the circadian lighting, these vertical gardens act as a natural air filtration system.
