Tishman, in a joint venture, served as Construction Manager for The Water Club expansion at the Borgata Hotel, Casino and Spa. The boutique hotel, which connects to the original Borgata, includes 800 rooms, a 36,000-square-foot, two-story "spa in the sky," 30,000 square feet of meeting/conference space, and a 1,600-car garage. This sophisticated yet playful environment includes a multitude of custom water features throughout the property.
The interior finishes include more than 40 varieties of woods and more than 60 different types of stones and tiles. Richly carved walnut, eucalyptus and mahogany contrast the French limestone throughout the lobby, meeting rooms and indoor pool. The spa is filled with extremely rare and uniquely grained Black Limba from the Ivory Coast of Africa -- a material not commonly used in America. There are also 35 luxury suites, each with their own massage room, laden with Pau Ferro and Sapeli woods, onyx, marble, granite and colored glass.
