Aman Resorts has announced its plans for the “urban sanctuary” in New York City.
Set to open in 2020, the property located at Fifth Avenue and 57th Street will have 83 hotel rooms, each measuring at least 70 square meters (753 square feet) and 20 private Aman Residences, whose owners will enjoy unlimited access to every hotel and Aman Club experience. These are crowned with a one-of-a-kind, five-storey Penthouse at the building’s pinnacle, which features swimming pools indoors and out, an expansive terrace and an activated cupola: an unparalleled dwelling at an unmatched address. It will be listed at more than $100 million, while the residences will reportedly start at $5.9 million for a one bedroom apartment to $58.3 million for a 4 bedroom condo.
Aman New York will boast a 2,000 square metre Aman Spa which fills three storeys, with a dramatic 25 metre indoor swimming pool surrounded by fire pits and daybeds as its centrepiece. Two Spa Houses will provide guests with an all-encompassing spa journey, encompassing a double treatment room, sauna and steam rooms, and an outdoor terrace with cabana, daybed and fireplace.
From the subterranean Jazz Bar to the wraparound Garden Terrace overlooking Central Park, Aman New York abounds with sociable spaces for dining, drinking and relaxing. Arva, the convivial Italian restaurant, is complemented by Nama – Aman’s interpretation of Japan’s washoku dining tradition – as well a Piano Bar, Cigar Bar, Wine Library and subterranean Jazz Club.
Aman’s CEO Vladislav Doronin said in a statement: “The Crown Building represents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to bring Aman to New York, the world’s greatest and most dynamic city. We are honored to be the stewards of an exciting new chapter in this iconic building’s legacy.”
