Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas to launch first North American property and its first urban hotel
October 12, 2016: Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas has announced the brand’s debut in the United States with the opening of, Six Senses New York, a luxury hotel being developed by HFZ Capital Group in New York City between Manhattan’s popular High Line and the Hudson River.
The hotel site encompasses the entire block between 17th and 18th streets in the heart of the city’s vibrant and artsy Chelsea neighborhood. The overall project, named The Eleventh, features two soaring towers designed by BIG (BjarkeIngels Group). The towers’ design draws inspiration from NYC’s classic Modernist structures and cultural institutions, while also playfully skewing the traditional skyscraper form with their rotating appearance. 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. This mixed-use development will include a five-star hotel, approximately 240 condominium residences and high-end retail shopping.
The hotel will be located in the east tower directly adjacent to the High Line with ten floors and 137 keys. Spas are an integral part of the Six Senses brand. Six Senses Spa New York will offer a layered approach to wellness with treatments that are an intuitive mix of science and human awareness, where a high-tech and high-touch approach defines service that is crafted around the individual.
Two restaurants will be located in the hotel and showcase the brand’s popular culinary approach to wellness by serving fresh, seasonal and locally-sourced produce and ingredients. Plans are also underway to create a unique private members club within the hotel and innovative meeting space to cater to small groups and board meetings.
Six Senses New York is slated to open in 2019.
