Six Senses Signs Luxury Hotel in New York City

Six Senses is to expand its highly respected brand to the United States, with the opening of a Six Senses hotel in New York.

 The luxury hotel, scheduled to open in 2019, will be located on 10th Avenue with the project encompassing the entire block between 17th and 18th streets in the heart of the citys vibrant and artsy Chelsea neighborhood.

The overall project, named The Eleventh, features two soaring towers designed by award-winning architectural and design group BIG (Bjarke Ingels Group).

 The towers are approximately 300 and 400 feet (90 and 120 meters) tall, making them far taller than surrounding buildings and create expansive vistas of the High Line, Hudson River and Downtown and Midtown skylines.

 The mixed-use development will feature a five-star hotel, approximately 240 condominium residences and high-end retail shopping.

 This project is a fascinating and exciting contrast to the typical Six Senses locations where we operate resorts in settings with azure waters, UNESCO heritage listings and lush rainforests, said Six Senses Chief Executive Officer, Neil Jacobs. Six Senses New York will have the same touch-points and DNA, with some creative adaptation of course, but with no compromises on our commitment to community, wellness, sustainability and design. We are delighted to be partnering with HFZ on this fabulous urban development.

The hotel will be located in the east tower directly adjacent to the High Line with ten floors and 137 keys starting at 400 square feet (37 square meters) in size.

 A popular New York City landmark, the High Line has helped transform the area into a must-see destination for both locals and tourists.

We are setting a new precedent for architecture, design and lifestyle in downtown Manhattan, in a world-class location squarely between the High Line and Hudson River, said HFZ Capital Group Chairman and Founder Ziel Feldman. Six Senses will bring something completely unique to the New York City hospitality space while helping us realize our vision for The Eleventh. As a company we share in Six Senses' commitment to a forward-thinking, environmentally-conscious mentality that makes no compromise on quality and service, making this the perfect partnership."

The hotel will feature meeting space, a Six Senses Spa, two restaurants and there are plans are for a private members club.
