W New York-Downtown Hotel & Residences

The W New York-Downtown Hotel & Residences is a 57-story tower rising at the southern edge of New York City’s World Trade Center Memorial Site, one block from the planned Freedom Tower, at 123 Washington Street. The first luxury hotel and residential tower to be built in Lower Manhattan, it is also the first new project not part of the WTC complex to begin construction since 9/11.

My Role

Developed the site front-end using Eclipse and ActionScript 3.0. I also developed the back-end tools that allowed the client tier to visualize the information stored in a SQL Server 2005; in this case I built a .NET Web Service (framework 2.0) to allow flash(version 9) to store/retrieve data from SQL.
