CH#261 - New York City - Lexington Hotel



New York City - Lexington Hotel





The Challenge:

This 1929 New York City historic hotel, located in what is known as hotel alley, was being renovated and owners needed a cost effective way to quickly and efficiently deal with lead based paint covering some of the surfaces. Since the hotel was also occupied, the project needed a product with zero VOC's so there would not be offensive, lingering odors.



Benefits Desired:

  • Green Solution
  • Zero VOC Coatings - Super Compliant
  • High Performance
  • No Generation of Hazardous Waste
  • Cost Effective
  • Protection from Potential Lead Hazards
  • Minimum Downtime






A GLOBAL Encasement, Inc. LeadLock system was chosen to not only seal in the existing Lead-Based Paint but also provide a tough, durable, sustainable surface with no offending odors.
