The Four Seasons Hotel, New York

The Four Seasons Hotel, New York

The Four Seasons Hotel, New York
57 East 57th Street
New York, New York, U.S.A. 10022

L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon at the Four Seasons Hotel - the interior glistens with rich details in light wood and black and red lacquer. In keeping with its atelier (artist’s workshop) approach, the heart of the restaurant is the open kitchen – allowing guests to watch the culinary team at work. Just 20 seats at the pearwood counter – considered the most desirable, with their view of the kitchen – and only 26 more at individual tables.
In 1987 William Zeckendorf Jr. assembled land on 57th Street between Park and Madison Avenue, consisting of four empty 5-floor buildings on the north side of 57th and an adjoining 58th Street site. Zeckendorf determined the best use for the site was a luxury hotel and began discussions with hotel operators.

One of the parcels at 50 East 58th - is the site of the former 200-room Blackstone Hotel and its restaurant Lottie's Dogwood Room.

Zeckendorf sought I.M. Pei (whose firm designed the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center) to design the luxury hotel. Zeckendorf Jr's father William Zeckendorf Sr. provided Pei with his first design job in 1946.

During the same time Harunori Takahashi, who some called the king of resort development projects in the South Pacific, admired Robert H Burns the founder of Regent Hotels International (a Hong Kong hotel company owned by an American!). Burns' first globally recognized luxury hotel, The Regent Hong Kong, opened in 1980. (It is an InterContinental now and not quite its former self).

Takahashi had just bought from Robert Burn's company the The Regent Sydney and was looking for more hotels to buy through the company he controlled - EIE International Corp. (Electronic & International Enterprises got its start in the 1940s importing from the US magnetic disc tapes). Takahashi also bought 30% of Regent Hotels from Robert Burns who retained 65%. The Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation owns 5 percent.

Burns knew William Zeckendorf Jr. and he knew Takahashi wanted to own an extraordinary hotel in New York City. The concept of a tall limestone luxury hotel on the 25,000 square foot lot was ready to move forward.

The hotel was announced in January 1989. It was expected to be the grandest hotel built in New York since the Waldorf=Astoria. The original plan was for 400 rooms and a main tower of 46-stories. A consortium of six Japanese banks led by Long-Term Credit Bank (LTCB) secured construction financing. The hotel was named Regent New York Hotel and to be managed by Regent International Hotels of Hong Kong. William Zeckendorf, Jr. acted as development consultant. Architects were I.M. Pei and Frank Williams, and Tishman Construction was the construction manager. (Frank Williams designed the 55-story W hotel in Times Square)

The interiors were to be designed by John F. Saladino, who was replaced by Hong Kong based Chhada, Siembieda & Associates, which was founded by Chandu Chhada and Don Siembieda in 1980.

Total costs for the 372-room project were estimated at $370 million - a million per room. By completion time the cost had swelled to $477 million, or $1.3 million a room.

A contemporary-modern approach was taken for the Regent, not a classical motif. The hotel's 52-story tower required a series of cascading set backs to comply with strict zoning requirements. Custom designed 12-foot decorative lanterns grace the upper levels. Honey-colored French Mangy limestone from France clad the facade.

The standard guest rooms are 610 sq ft with 10'4" ceilings. Fiddleback English Sycamore was used for all cabinetwork, doors and furniture.

Robert Burns was a stickler for detail especially on how to build a bathroom. Burns is quoted saying "I just feel that nobody should sit in a tub where somebody stood." The Regent New York baths are built with a glass enclosed shower stall and separate soaking tub.

Just after the hotel's topping off event in 1990 the Japanese real estate market imploded. EIE and Regent Hotels was forced to sell the Regent hotel chain and hotels under development at that time were in New York City, Bali, Milan, and Istanbul - all were subsequently opened as Four Seasons.

One of the major figures during Japan's bubble economy years was EIE's Harunori Takahashi, who bought up Hyatt and Regent hotels with $6 billion borrowed from the credit unions that were run by his friends. He was also president of a credit union which lent his own businesses over $1.26 billion. Takahashi died in 2005 a convicted felon.

In March 1992 Four Seasons Hotels Inc. paid $102 million for the Regent International Hotels group, providing the North American hotel operator an Asian foothold. Ownership of the under-construction Regent remained with Japan's Long-Term Credit Bank (LTCB).

LTCB, later renamed Shinsei, epitomized Japan’s banking problems. It is a story of greed, corruption and at time madness. LTCB was once the world’s

Savannah College of Art & Design, theater building

The Savannah College of Art and Design (often referred to as SCAD) — founded in 1978 by Paula S. Wallace, Richard Rowan, May Poetter and Paul Poetter — offers Fine Arts degrees. The college is closely engaged with the city and the preservation, at least architecturally, of its rich heritage.

SCAD enrolls more than 7,000 students from all 50 states and 100 countries. International student enrollment is 10-12 percent.

Degree programs include advertising design, animation, architectural history, architecture, art history, arts administration (M.A. only), broadcast design and motion graphics, cinema studies (M.A. only), contemporary writing, fashion, fibers, film and television, furniture design, graphic design, historic preservation, illustration, illustration design (M.A. only), industrial design, interactive design and game development, interior design, metals and jewelry, painting, performing arts, photography, production design, sculpture, sequential art, sound design, urban design (M.U.D. only), visual communication (B.A. only) and visual effects.

Minors are offered in 28 of the major programs as well as in accessory design, British-American studies, business management and entrepreneurship, ceramic arts, cultural landscape, dance, decorative arts, drawing, electronic design, exhibition design, interaction design, marine design, museum studies, music performance, new media art, printmaking, sculpture, storyboarding and technical direction.

The college also features a study-abroad campus in the scenic town of Lacoste, France. In 2005, SCAD opened a campus in Midtown, Atlanta, Georgia, called SCAD-Atlanta. In June 2006, the Atlanta College of Art merged with SCAD, resulting in more opportunities for students. SCAD-Atlanta is near the Woodruff Arts Center and the High Museum of Art on Peachtree Street in Atlanta.

Poetter Hall, originally Preston Hall, was SCAD's first building and first historic restoration project.
Poetter Hall, originally Preston Hall, was SCAD's first building and first historic restoration project.

The college's first academic building was the Savannah Volunteer Guard Armory, which was purchased and renovated in 1979. Built in 1892, the Romanesque Revival red brick structure is included on the National Register of Historic Places. Originally named Preston Hall, the building was renamed Poetter Hall in honor of co-founders May and Paul Poetter. SCAD soon expanded rapidly, acquiring buildings in Savannah's downtown historic and Victorian districts, restoring old and often derelict buildings that had exhausted their original functions.

By restoring buildings for use as college facilities, the college has been recognized by the American Institute of Architects, the National Trust for Historic Preservation, the Historic Savannah Foundation and the Victorian Society of America, among others. The college campus now consists of more than 60 buildings throughout the grid and park system of downtown Savannah. Many buildings are located on the famous 21 squares of the old town, which are laden with monuments, live oaks and an undeniable Southern-Gothic feel that is sought by the many movies filmed there.

Features located on or near the college buildings include the Riverfront Plaza and Factors' Walk — River Street's restored 19th-century cotton warehouses and passageways include shops, bars and restaurants — and City Market, Savannah's restored central market, features antiques, souvenirs and small eateries.

Located in Atlanta's burgeoning Midtown, SCAD–Atlanta facilities provide ample classroom and exhibition space, well-equipped computer labs, library, photography darkrooms, printmaking and sculpture studios, a dining hall, fitness center, swimming pool and residence hall.

The college's facilities in Lacoste, France, date back 500–600 years. Founded by Bernard Pfriem, an American artist, in the 1970s and called the Lacoste School of the Arts, the small town of about 300 permanent inhabitants is steeped in rustic charm. Lacoste is a medieval village in Provence, which is in Southern France. The beautiful countryside is an asset to the college as an inspiration for the courses taught there. Enrollment in Lacoste usually is for one quarter of the academic school year.
