Originally it was constructed in 1913 and was one of the largest buildings in New York in those days, now a hot property destination with 20,000 sq. ft. courtyard and all the modern amenities present. Interestingly, the building has received Building Brooklyn Award 2011 in adaptive reuse category. Another important work by Jason is South Beach Starwood Hotel in Miami, and it was originally a motel named Anakara.
