The Waldorf will be a 13 story hotel structure on top of a 2 story subterranean parking garage. The first three levels clad in window walls and glazing systems with glazed strip window walls continuing throughout all the guest rooms. Stone veneer will cover the guest room decks, while mounted stone pavers will be used to cover the landscape roof decks, and waterproofing assemblies.
