Q&A Hotel Offers New York Travelers Something New

Q&A Hotel Offers New York Travelers Something New

Q&A HOTEL OFFERS NEW YORK TRAVELERS SOMETHING NEW The Q&A Hotel in New York’s Financial District offers more than a mere hotel room. Longterm visitors can enjoy a private apartment residence for a reasonable rate. By John Scott Lewinski – Feb 13th, 2016 Q&A Hotel Offers New York Travelers Something New It’s not every day that a new concept in hotels comes to a city that thinks it’s already seen it all come and go. But, I don’t think New York has seen a hotel quite like the Q&A in the heart of the Financial District. Rather than appeal exclusively to the short term traveler with a simple room or suite like so many New York venues, the Q&A Hotel is a residential hotel offering larger style spaces to its longterm guests. For a competitive nightly rate, the Q&A visitor ends up with a very expensive commodity — a proper Manhattan apartment. The Q&A Hotel is the Big Apple brainchild of Furnished Quarters, an operation specializing in longer term, corporate accommodations. The idea is to give the upscale business traveler who has to be on station at a given venue longer than a few days luxury accommodations beyond a mere hotel. Furnished Quarters offers a proper residence — the proverbial home away from home. No matter the size of the given suite, the Q&A’s rooms include everything any residence must have, including everything from a complete set of kitchen appliances, to a quality bed to HD TV. Keeping in mind that the hotel is intended first for business travelers, most rooms include a work/office space set apart from the living...

Q&A HOTEL Opened: November 2015 Make yourself at home in downtown Manhattan, courtesy of apartment rental company Furnished Quarters. For its first short-stay option (that’s any length of time under 30 days ), the company launched Q&A Hotel in part of the landmark Art Deco building at 70 Pine Street, once the home of finance company AIG. (Long-term rentals take up the rest of the renovated structure.) The 132 suites are separated into six categories, each named for inventors throughout history; choices include one-bedroom Wright Brothers apartments, with blueprints of the brothers’ 1906 flying machine, and kitchen-equipped studios named for Mary Anderson, who patented the windshield wiper. Smart HDTVs with cable and streaming capabilities, free Wi-Fi, complimentary morning coffee and treats, and concierge services like grocery delivery make things even homier. A 21,000 square-foot gym (opening in 2016) and rooftop restaurant and bar from the team behind The Spotted Pig (opening in 2017) will round out the perks.

REAL ESTATE WEEKLY: Trinity Place unveils its 77 Greenwich project, leasing underway at 70 Pine

● TRINITY PLACE HOLDINGS 77 Greenwich unveiled Trinity Place Holdings last week announced its plans for a 285,000 s/f mixed-use development project at 77 Greenwich Street in the Financial District. “We are happy to share that construction will start this year,” said Matthew Messinger, President & CEO of Trinity Place Holdings, Inc., owner and developer of the 77 Greenwich Street project. The building will have approximately 85 luxury residential condominiums and 7,000 s/f of retail on Greenwich Street, as well as the recently announced 476-seat elementary school serving District 2. “We are also proud to be a part of bringing a much needed new public school to Lower Manhattan. As Downtown Manhattan continues to see more than $30 billion of public and private investments come to fruition, 77 Greenwich is the latest milestone in the neighborhood’s evolution as a highly desirable live-work community.” FXFOWLE Architects has designed the mixed-use tower, which is slated to rise approximately 500 ft. and will feature a pleated glass curtainwall above a limestone base. Deborah Berke Partners is designing the residential interiors. The Marketing Directors will lead the marketing and sales effort for the luxury condominium residences. All condos will start at an elevation of 150 feet, sitting above the school, allowing for panoramic views of New York Harbor, the Hudson River as well as the New York City skyline from every home in the building.” Slated for completion in 2019, the development site is comprised of the former Syms clothing store and the 19th-century landmarked Dickey House, a federal-style townhouse constructed in the early 1800s. The Dickey House exterior will be restored and...
