TOTO announced that this summer more than 375,000 New Yorkers and visitors have experienced its newly renovated luxury public restrooms in Bryant Park, which opened in late April. By year's end, an estimated 1.15 million people will have visited the park’s loos and experienced the TOTO products.
Before undertaking its new $280 thousand-dollar renovation project, Bryant Park’s design-build team sought inspiration from some of New York’s luxury hotels. Improvements included imported floor and wall tiles, coffered ceilings, crown moldings, all-weather temperature controls, energy-saving LED lighting, and plein air paintings by the park's painters-in-residence. In the public restrooms, Bryant Park's Design Build Team installed TOTO's 1.28 gpf High Efficiency Toilets, 0.125 gpf High Efficiency Urinals and EcoPower High Efficiency Sensor Flush Valves – both 1.28 and 0.125 gpf models.
“Having this partnership with TOTO is ideal,” said Dan Biederman, executive director of the Bryant Park Corporation. “We both share a commitment to providing top-notch experiences for the public, and we both maintain the highest standards for the services and amenities we provide on a daily basis. Each day, the thousands who visit Bryant Park’s restrooms see the TOTO name and quickly realize that its fixtures contribute to a luxurious experience in a public restroom.”
