Real estate investment firm Ark Partners is to construct a new 30-storey hotel in New York, US, which is slated to open in 2013.

The luxury lifestyle hotel, designed by the US-based firm Roman and Williams, has been inspired by traditional architecture in the area.

The 130,000ft² property will feature a lobby that includes a restaurant and bar, and 250 guest rooms, including 46 suites.

Gene Kaufman Architects is the building’s architect and Hunter Roberts Construction Group has been selected as the general contractor.
