Project Description

This winter, Donnelly Construction was asked to return to the Central Park Boathouse for a brand new interior refresh, with updates to the private room and a new bridal suite. Other renovations included;  a brand new bar, stone flooring, updating the bathrooms, lighting and finishes, and adding a Nanawall.

We are happy to have partnered with S9 Architecture and Niemitz Design Group, inc. on this newest makeover. To read more on our previous work with the restaurant, visit: The Loeb Boathouse Central Park.

Although the Central Park Boathouse was out of commission for the past 3 months, we are sure patrons will love the new aesthetic and think it was worth the wait!


The Central Park Boathouse is back — hipper and more water-resistant and just in time for a late spring that finally has sprung.

The Instagram-worthy lakeside eatery near the park’s Fifth Avenue and East 72nd entrance will reopen Saturday after a $2.9 million face-lift that forced it to close for three months.

“It was tired after 18 years,” said owner Dean Poll, who took over the restaurant in 2000. The renovation also satisfies a big part of Poll’s obligation to the city — to provide capital improvements to the 1954-vintage structure.

Also known as the Loeb Boathouse, the stone, brick and wood venue always had magical views of the Central Park West skyline and passing gondolas.

But it had gotten creaky from age, heavy traffic and the wear and tear that comes with being on the water.
