Baccarat Hotel & Residences New York to launch soon
June 6, 2013: The elegance and beauty of Baccarat has been enthralling us for 250 years now. Whether it’s their bar and tableware or scintillating chandeliers, Baccarat knows style of luxury living.
What better than seeing a larger version of that style through Baccarat Hotel & Residences which will open in New York in 2014. The bookings for the residences, however, are open.
Located just off Fifth Avenue on 53rd Street, directly across from the Museum of Modern Art, Baccarat Hotel & Residences New York will surely become one of Manhattan’s most prestigious addresses. It is a combination of brilliant design, exceptional service and amenities that reflect the richness of the venerable French crystal company’s nearly 250-year heritage.
Designed by the award-winning architects of Skidmore Owings & Merrill, the eye-catching 50-story glass tower will 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. In addition, the tower will feature a luxury hotel, with 114 rooms including 26 suites, which will be the global flagship for Baccarat Hotels.
Drawing inspiration from the craftsmanship of the crystal company, interior designer Tony Ingrao conceptualized the distinct interior design for the building’s private residences. The residences will have a private entrance and feature sophisticated finishes that combine natural elements with contemporary concepts including: custom bronze-work crackled with crystal, modern furnishings and floor-to-ceiling windows that capture the natural light outside to give a vast openness to each space. A Baccarat chandelier will also be incorporated in the foyer of each residence. The master bath is generously outfitted with a free-standing soaking tub, glass-enclosed shower and rich white marble, including the floor, walls and vanity. Only the finest brands and technology will be incorporated throughout with Miele and Sub-Zero in the kitchens, LG washers and dryers, as well as Kallista wash basins. Each residence is also equipped with fully automated Crestron controls to adjust lighting, audio/visual, heating/cooling and window shades.
Residential owners will have 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. The luxury hotel will also feature a standalone “crystal bar” surrounded by an outdoor Tuileries-style terrace, and a bustling bar and restaurant, all of which will provide a luxury lifestyle experience befitting a concept by a brand like Baccarat.
With prices of the residences ranging from $3.5 million to $60 million, Baccarat Hotel & Residences New York will open in 2014, coinciding with the crystal company’s 250 year anniversary. Get that Baccarat larger-than-life, brilliant experience…
