Set to be a landmark destination in the heart of Manhattan, New York City, one of the most expensive zip codes in U.S. where the billionaires rush to invest in the multi-million dollar luxury estates and trophy properties, the Baccarat Hotel & Residences impressively marries brilliant design with exceptional service and amenities that reflect the venerable French crystal company Baccarat’s nearly 250-year heritage. Yesterday, the iconic Starwood Capital Group in partnership with Tribeca Associates announced the official start of sales for Baccarat Hotel & Residences New York, a striking 50-storey glass tower designed by the award-winning architects of Skidmore Owings & Merrill. Located just off Fifth Avenue on 53rd Street directly across from the Museum of Modern Art, the tower reflecting elegance and prestige of Baccarat will provide an unrivaled experience for guests and residents to admire the company’s artisanship and commitment to perfection in both design and service. With prices ranging from $3.5 million to $60 million, Baccarat Residences offer layouts from approximately 1,000 square feet to 7,400 square feet, with the option for buyers to combine units.
The stunning glass tower will impressively feature 61 private residences designed by Tony Ingrao that range in size from one to four-bedrooms, including four full-floor units and one five-bedroom penthouse duplex with outdoor terrace. Interior designer Tony Ingrao used sumptious woods and distinct metals to give the homes rich texture.
In addition, the tower will feature a luxury hotel, with 114 rooms including 26 suites, which will be the global flagship for Baccarat Hotels.
The residences will have a private entrance and feature sophisticated finishes that combines natural elements with contemporary concepts. Further, a special Baccarat chandelier will also be incorporated as a signature feature in the foyer of each residence.
The master bath in the residences comes fitted with only the finest brands and technology including fully automated Crestron controls to adjust lighting, audio/visual, heating/cooling, and window shades.
Additionally, the residential owners will have complete access to all luxury hotel amenities and services including personal concierge and housekeeping services, 24-hour in-residence dining and access to the beautifully designed spa, indoor pool and fitness facility.
On the same note we have also earlier seen the One Hyde Park residences at Mandarin Oriental, London which generated huge interest from the global wealthy investors and exceeded $2.21 billion in sales.
