New Haven’s Pirelli Building transformed to Hotel Marcel

NEW HAVEN — The putting, Brutalist — and really, incredibly visible — Marcel Breuer-designed Pirelli Developing that has stood empty for a long time future to Ikea at the junction of Interstates 95 and 91 is empty no far more.

Vacant due to the fact before long soon after Pirelli Tire Co.’s 1988 order of the Armstrong Tire Co., which opened the making as its headquarters in 1970, the setting up this previous week was a noisy beehive of very last-minute preparations, complete of the appears of vacuums and occasional hammering and power instruments.

But on Monday it will settle down and open up — just in time for Yale University’s Could 23 commencement — as the hippest, most sustainable and eco-pleasant new hotel in city.
