The Plaza Hotel and Residences

The Plaza Hotel is one of only two New York hotels that have been designated a national historic landmark.  The historic 19-story building, owned by ELAD Properties, underwent a $350 million renovation that resulted in 182 luxury residential units and 282 hotel rooms (including 152 condominium hotel units), and 180,000 sq. ft. of retail space.  There are separate entrances for the hotel and for the residential units. 

VDA provided consulting services for the installation of a new wheelchair lift, a new dumbwaiter, three (3) new traction and ten (10) new hydraulic elevators; and modernization of an existing sidewalk lift, twelve (12) existing traction elevators and one (1) existing hydraulic elevator.
