Facts

  • Rather garish detailing and large retail stores at the ground level complete the transformation of this early 20th century skyscraper into a late modern glass monolith.
  • A renovation by Hyatt Hotels was undertaken in 1980 by Der Scutt in association with Gruzen & Partners.
  • The hotel has 35,000 square feet of total meeting space.
  • The architects left the exterior bricks of the Commodore in place, covering them with the reflective glass skin of the Grand Hyatt.
  • The former building on this site was built as the Commodore Hotel which was named for "Commodore" Cornelius Vanderbilt.
