The Crown Building


Ant Yapi US is proud of its first major project in the United States — the preservation and adaptive reuse of the historic 1921 Beaux-Arts Crown Building. The first high-rise building constructed in Manhattan, The Crown Building is the original home of The Museum of Modern Art located in the heart of the city’s tourist district. This beautiful landmark is reminiscent of old New York and will continue to grace the Manhattan cityscape with creative mixed-use redevelopment. 
Spanning 25 floors, the majestic Crown Building is one of Manhattan’s most high-profile and visible renovation and expansion projects. The building’s transformation into a luxury hotel and residences include the construction of 26 condominium apartments, 83 hotel rooms, a grand lobby, a three-story day spa, indoor and outdoor pools, wrap-around terrace, gym, multiple restaurants with over 700 square feet of outdoor dining, a jazz club in the cellar, and a subterranean wine cellar.
