Faits

  • In 1998 the whole hotel underwent extensive refurbishing and redecorating.
  • At the time of its completion, the 171.5 m tall hotel was the tallest in New York.
  • The hotel itself has an entrance from the east end of the courtyard, as well as from the 50th and 51st Streets. The three-level lobby has also sumptuous decor and is dominated by the grand staircase.
  • The tower rises on its own foundations, but has been partly cantilevered over the east wing of the Villard Houses, rising over the courtyard of the hotel complex.
  • The developers used the air rights of the old mansions to build the staggeringly contrasting 55-storey Helmsley Palace Hotel (later New York Palace) in 1980.
  • Originally designed with a travertine facing and vertical strip-windows with arches on top, the facades were actually changed to a curtain wall of bronze-anodized aluminium and darkened glass.
  • The complex consists of two distinct groups of buildings, spanning almost a full century and incorporating 963 guest rooms.
  • The target of commercial interest and a landmark since 1968, the Villard Houses (451-457 Madison Avenue, 1883-1886), a group of six brownstone private mansions by McKim, Mead & White, were sold by the archdiocese of New York to the Helmsley Corporation in 1974.
