The upmarket brand said it plans to unveil the Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown in the city’s financial district in “late summer” and has started confirming reservations for arrivals from October 16.
Four Seasons already has one property in New York, which is located close to Central Park.
The new hotel, which is one block from the World Trade Centre, will occupy the first 24 floors of an 82-storey residential skyscraper and will feature 185 rooms including 28 suites, and interiors designed by Yabu Pushelberg.
Rooms will average 37 square metres in size and range up to the Royal Suite offering 223 square metres of space. Some rooms will have balconies and every room will feature the company’s signature Four Seasons beds.
Hotel facilities will include US celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck’s first Manhattan restaurant, CUT by Wolfgang Puck, and the Spa at Four Seasons featuring seven treatment rooms, a 23-metre pool and sundeck. The ballroom can also cater for events of up to 250 guests.
Peter Humig, who is general manager of the new hotel, said the downtown area has been undergoing a major “renaissance” in recent years.
“Downtown New York is being reborn as a place where people not only work, but they live,” he added.
“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.”
