All-New Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown to open Q4
Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown will open in an 82-storey skyscraper designed by architect Robert A.M. Stern. The hotel, which will be located on Barclay Street, Downtown New York, is now accepting reservations for arrivals beginning 17 October 2016.
The city’s anticipated Silverstein building will allegedly house the 185-key Four Seasons Hotel as well as 157 Four Seasons Private Residences.
“In a city that always surprises, there’s a kind of renaissance happening in its oldest area. No longer simply a business district, Downtown New York is being reborn as a place where people not only work, but they live,” says Peter Humig, General Manager of the soon-to-be-opened Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown. “A new layer of community is emerging amid the neighbourhoods we already know so well including Tribeca, Soho and Wall Street. Exciting new architecture has taken shape, cultural institutions such as the Whitney Museum of American Art have opened alongside the area’s art galleries, new shops and restaurants are launching every week, and businesses are moving back to Lower Manhattan.”
The hotel will feature a two-storey lobby, which will include layers of architectural elements in response to the ever-evolving urban landscape that surrounds it. Feet will rest on soft wool carpeting as the eye takes in original artworks displayed against rich wood walls and woven metal screens. Brushed bronze accents and fabrics in muted jewel tones will invite casual socialising, while a dramatic suspended staircase hints at the gracious gathering spaces above.
Throughout the interiors designed by Toronto and Soho-based Yabu Pushelberg, the aesthetic will combine varying textures to create spaces that are distinctly modern, and yet immediately welcoming.
